I also wasn't sure it would be useful, but in the case of fall-through, I can see how it might come in handy to pass the matched string. That will go into the next revision.

I'm not married to the name 'new' (and when I package it with other flavors of Case, it will certainly have a different name), but I didn't have a better name. I think it's just as legitimate to call a factory "new" as it is to call an OO constructor "new". The users are expected to read the documentation.

I left out a default identifier because I didn't want to have a string that might conflict with an alternative. But it occurred to me that a call to a subroutine that returns an empty list could be tucked in there and be absolutely transparent. That will also be in the next revision.

I don't know what a continue/finalise block should do here. Could you explain?

Thanks for your input.

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.
