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

Your immediate problem is that x doesn't do what you want. To achieve what you want ("doubling" the commands) you need something like:

push @array, ('@', '@') if scalar(@array) < 10; splice @array, -2, 2 if scalar(@array) >= 10;

However that is only a tiny part of the problem. Your bigest problem is that an array is not appropriate, you need to use a string. Something like this:

use strict; use warnings; use Text::Autoformat; my $str=qw/@/; for my $i(1..10){ $str = autoformat ($str, { justify => 'center' }); print "$str\n"; $str .= "@@" if length ($str) < 10; substr $str, -2, 2, '' if length ($str) > 10; }

However that still fails because you clobber $str each time through the loop. Changing the first two lines in the loop to :

my $newStr = autoformat ($str, { justify => 'center' }); print "$newStr\n";

gets you closer, but leaves another logic problem (bug) which I'll leave you to puzzle over. :)

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.
