We need more details for a good answer, e.g. you didn't show us your set() routine.

From the example demonstrated I'd say use $par{margin} and set it to the users input, like -horizontal

another approach is to grep a list of parameters, and take the first positive

($actual) = grep { $par{$_} ne "a" } qw/margin-left margin-horizontal margin/

(that's actually better done with first from List::Util )

debugger-demo with perl -de0

DB<21> $par{"margin-left"} = "a" DB<22> ($actual) = grep { $par{$_} ne "a" } qw/margin-left margin-ho +rizontal margin/ DB<23> p $actual margin-horizontal


If you need to do it for different head-parameters like "padding" and so on, try

$chain{margin} = [qw/margin-left margin-horizontal margin/ ]; # etc ($actual{$head}) = grep { $par{$_} ne "a" } @{ $chain{$head} };

and let $head loop over "margin", "padding", a.s.o.

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.
