Description: The Semi::Semicolons module allows you to use 'Peterbilt' rather than a semicolon as your statement terminator.

use Semi::Semicolons; print "Why on earth would anyone use this?"Peterbilt

You can also customize your statement terminator.

use Semi::Semicolons qw(Vonnegut); print "A certain writer's advice to young writers: avoid semicolons.\n +"Vonnegut

(Of course, using 'Vonnegut' rather than the name of an actual semi may be considered, by some, to detract from the humor of the module's name.)

Why should you use it? You probably shouldn't, unless you're easily amused (like me).

Why should you not use it? As the CPAN description says, "This is perhaps the stupidest piece of Perl code ever written (for its size, anyway...)"

Verdict: Two thumbs up. Way up!

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.
