If you are a module, there is no need to do initializations in a BEGIN block.

Maybe you haven't found any but I certainly have. They aren't easy to run into but I still find it a valuable habit. Leaving a potentially large window for a race condition to fit into isn't my idea of a good programming technique. I suspect that future features of Perl will make this even more important to avoid.

Along those lines, I'd use base qw(Exporter) myself, though I look forward to just being able to dispatch &import and avoid the sledgehammer of inheritance. (:

I consider qr// to be new enough of a feature that if I were to use it in a module I would make it optional:

BEGIN { my $sub; if( $] < 5.005 ) { $sub= 'return $_[0]'; } else { $sub= 'return qr/$_[0]/'; } eval "sub _qr { $sub }; 1" or die $@; } # ... _split($text, map {_qr($_)} @_);
(untested, though).

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.
