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

The Switch module mistakenly escaped into Perl 5.8. Do not use it. The Switch module was deprecated in Perl 5.10 and removed in Perl 5.14.

Notice that in Categorized Damian Modules, the Switch module is categorized by its author as "Damian modules you shouldn't use in production because their purpose is to explore and prototype future core language features".

You can switch to the built-in given/when if using Perl 5.10+. If stuck with Perl 5.8, I'd just use an if/elsif block instead.

See also: stackoverflow question on why the Switch module is deprecated.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
