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

Update: solved! Well, it will be solved...

I was playing around with tie and interpolation (for obfu purposes, FWIM), and I got what seems to me as a strange result:

#!/usr/bin/perl -l use strict; use warnings; sub TIESCALAR { bless \my $i, shift } sub FETCH { ${shift,}++ } tie my $s, 'main'; print "$s$s$s"; print "$s$s$s"; tie my $t, 'main'; print " $t$t$t"; print " $t$t$t"; __END__

This gives me the following output:

112 445 012 345
so it seems that something wrong, or at least unexpected, happens when a tied variable appears at the beginning of an interpolating string.

Remark: please note that this is not an artifact of the minimalistic nature of the example, i.e. of the fact that I use main as the class providing the implementation of the variable, and that I do not provide a STORE method. I tried with more complex stuff and indeed the behaviour shown above persists.

Also note that with arrays everything works as one would naively expect - consider:

#!/usr/bin/perl -l use strict; use warnings; sub TIEARRAY { bless \my $i, shift } sub FETCHSIZE { 3 } sub FETCH { ${shift,}++ } tie my @s, 'main'; print "@s - @s - @s"; __END__
which gives me:
0 1 2 - 3 4 5 - 6 7 8

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).
