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

Keeping the default in the %par hash could be one way. Seems relatively clean to me...

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; # use warnings; my %par = map { split ' ', $_, 2 } split /\n/, <<END; margin-left defaults to margin-horizontal margin-horizontal defaults to margin margin 20 margin-right 3 margin-bottom defaults to margin-right END use Data::Dump 'dd'; dd 'dump of %par', \%par; sub get { my $want = shift; $want = $1 while ($par{$want} // '') =~ /^defaults to (.+)/; return $par{$want} // 'not defined'; } for my $parameter ( sort 'margin-top', keys %par ) { printf "%30s => %s\n", $parameter, get($parameter); }


( "dump of %par", { "margin" => 20, "margin-bottom" => "defaults to margin-right", "margin-horizontal" => "defaults to margin", "margin-left" => "defaults to margin-horizontal", "margin-right" => 3, }, ) margin => 20 margin-bottom => 3 margin-horizontal => 20 margin-left => 20 margin-right => 3 margin-top => not defined

UPDATE: fixed typo in regex

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.
