It does sound rather as though you're looking for a way to make a sub force its caller to return. You may be interested, amused, and/or horrified to know that Want provides an (undocumented) way to do just this. If you call Want::double_return(), then the next ordinary return will return from the calling sub.

For example, the code:

use Want; sub foo { print "Entering foo\n"; bar(); print "Leaving foo\n"; return "foo did this"; } sub bar { print "Entering bar\n"; print "Leaving bar\n"; Want::double_return(); return "bar did this"; } print "About to call foo()\n"; my $r = foo(); print "foo() returned '$r'\n";
prints the following:
About to call foo() Entering foo Entering bar Leaving bar foo() returned 'bar did this'

Update: so in your case, you could write

sub EVENT { $kernel->post( shift, event => @_ ); Want::double_return(); return; }

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
