( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
My way of implementing merlyn's suggestion of having multiple functions with different interfaces is to have one function that constructed your query string from one of those interfaces (eg arrays) and then have another that accepts a hash-ref, repackages that in terms of array refs, and then calls the first.

So you have exactly one real implementation (should you want to change the construction of the query string it is easy to do so) yet you have two functions. One of which can't be called with a hash ref, the other which needs an array ref. Without doing any test within the function or making the implementation of the critical code more complex.

Title:
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.
