It becomes clear as what's going on, once we add some print outs at certain critical point (also see comments):

use Data::Dumper; use strict; sub prefix_later { my ($just_once,$and_later) = @_; #passed by calling part, see below my $ct=0; return sub { my (@args) = shift(); #this is just a trick ;-) print Dumper(\@args); print "ct = $ct\n"; #will not be reset to zero, becasue of closu +re ((!$ct++) ? #only true for the first time sub { print "sub1\n"; $just_once->(@args); #hi mom } : sub { print "sub2\n"; $and_later->(@args); #this was unneccessary: $just_once->(@args); #hi mom } )->(); } } my $hi_mom = prefix_later( sub { print "hi mom\n"; },#this is just once sub { print "this was unneccessary:\n"; } #this is and later ); $hi_mom->() for (1..3);


#first round $VAR1 = [ undef ]; ct = 0 sub1 hi mom #second round $VAR1 = [ undef ]; ct = 1 sub2 this was unneccessary: hi mom #third round $VAR1 = [ undef ]; ct = 2 sub2 this was unneccessary: hi mom

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.
