Hello Monks,

I have been searching about for how to declare a variable, ranging from SuperSearch to just using the search function, and have not found an article or node that may satisfy my curiosity.

What I wish to know was that I came across another post on this node of Seekers of Perl Wisdom that looked like this:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use warnings; CheckAllPairs(); CheckAllPairs(); sub CheckAllPairs{ my $abs_time_res=50; my $max_peak_time=2050; my $subj_num; my $region; my $region1; my $region2; my $time; my $peaks; my @act_list1; my @act_list2; my $i; my $j; my $key; my $delta; my %map; my $start_A; my $end_A; my $start_B; my $end_B; my @region_list = (1..38); my @main_subjects_list = (1..38);

I was wondering if this is a good example of declaring variables at the beginning of a script, which, in this case, also uses the recommended USE STRICT call at the beginning of this example snippet?

As always, thank you, and I think when all is said and done, I may be creating a FOR BEGINNERS section if I'm not careful.

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.
