( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Thanks! So, in order to allow my method of processing command line options to continue to work while using the v5.36 features, I can write:
use v5.36; use feature qw/switch/; no warnings "experimental::smartmatch"; no warnings "experimental::for_list"; for my ( $opt, $val ) (%$opts ) { given ($opt) { when ('h') { HELP_MESSAGE(); } when ('v') { ++$verbose; } when ('r') { ++$recursive; } when ('c') { ++$confirm; } when ('f') { ++$force; } default { die "*** BUG: no handler for -$opt.\n"; } } }
To me, this reads the best. I guess that if given goes away I'll replace it with for .. reluctantly, because "for" has always implied looping to me.

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.
