( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I was surprised by the lack of such a function in List::MoreUtils recently. There is natatime, but it returns an iterator rather than using a callback.

I wonder how much speed you'd gain by replacing $f->($a,$b) with &$f. Another advanced feature for the collection!

It would be a nice bonus if you $a and $b were aliases to the args like with map.

sub map_pairs(&@) { my $cb = shift; my $caller = caller(); my $ap = do { no strict 'refs'; \*{$caller.'::a'} }; my $bp = do { no strict 'refs'; \*{$caller.'::b'} }; local *$ap; local *$bp; my @res; while (@_) { *$ap = \shift; *$bp = \shift; push @res, &$cb; } return @res; }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
