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

Unfortunately, it's still altering an array (or it might have been a hash) over which you're iterating and so still incorrect:

c:\@Work\Perl\monks>perl -wMstrict -le "my @colors = qw(red green blue yellow pink purple brown); my @drop = qw(pink purple); while ( my ($num, $val) = each @colors ) { if ($val eq $drop[0] or $val eq $drop[1]) { splice (@colors, $num, 1); } } print qq{@colors}; " red green blue yellow purple brown

Update: each sez:

If you add or delete a hash's elements while iterating over it, the effect on the iterator is unspecified; for example, entries may be skipped or duplicated--so don't do that.
The same obviously applies to arrays. The each doc goes on to discuss a specific exception involving delete and hashes, but still no joy WRT arrays.

Give a man a fish:  <%-{-{-{-<

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
