( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm not sure if I'm missing the point, but here's one example of a routine that uses lexical scoping, named blocks and goto to invoke different segments of code in the routine each time it's called.

use strict; use warnings; { my $location = "FIRST"; sub jumparound { goto $location; FIRST: { print "First segment.\n"; $location = "SECOND"; return; } SECOND: { print "Second segment.\n"; $location = "FIRST"; return; } } } jumparound(); jumparound(); jumparound();

And the output is:

First segment. Second segment. First segment.

This snippet seems to satisfy "preserve the values of their local variables between successive calls."

It also satisfies "appears to be like subroutines with multiple entry and exit points."

But I haven't read Knuth (and I'm beginning to feel like it's high time I do), so I'm not sure if my snippet satisfies all of the requirements.

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.
