( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Was forgetting for a minute that declaring $b there would actually scope it inside the loop.
This isn't quite true - the output of Deparse is wrong. The lexical is scoped wider than the loop, as can be seen here:
$ perl585 -le '$x=99; my $x = $_ for 1..3; print $x' $
(Note that $::x isn't printed, the lexical $x is instead.) However, the initialising and releasing of $x is scoped to within the loop.

That may be construed as a bug. There again, statement modifiers on my declarations are usally buggy, and are best avoided.

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.
