  • Commented on Something New Every Day
    I partially agree, but clarity first and foremost, and I would argue that   print "$timestamp,$username,$operation,$result\n" is more readable than   print "${timestamp},${username},${operation},${result}\n"...

  • Commented on Else Clauses on Loops
    Grinnz, I think the functionality of the continue block would be unaffected. It is executed after each iteration of the loop body, so if the loop block is executed at least once, the continue block is executed at least once...
  • Commented on Else Clauses on Loops
    preaction, while googling around to see if any other languages have this feature, I encountered the else clause on loops in Python. I was really boggled... it seems like it's invoked in the exact opposite of circumstances when a loop's...
  • Commented on Else Clauses on Loops
    Pawel, in your for loop example, the else clause would not be executed because the loop was executed at least once (it had to be entered in order to get to the last). In your while example, the else clause...
  • Commented on Else Clauses on Loops
    Mithaldu, while you are technically correct (the best kind of correct!) I personally find the foreach spelling of for to be a lot more intuitive because it's more like natural language. And to me, fewer characters is never more important...

    LOL, but you are absolutely correct in that failure to use strict and enable warnings is the first and worst problem....

  • Commented on Three Sort Functions
    Certainly using a Schwartzian Transform (let alone a GRT) will be faster; in fact my testing indicates they are ~75% and ~90% faster, respectively. This post is just intended to be some sort functions that I hope are interesting and...

    You guessed it. I have found that it is much easier to create a post externally and copy it into the RTF editor. It turns out that Movable Type and I are only marginally compatible....

  • Commented on qk: Quote Membership Hash Keys
    I'm not a fan of either proposal... because of how little they offer In my opinion, qk() offers clearer code, and that's not a little thing. I will not comment further on qa() since it isn't my idea, although I...
  • Commented on qk: Quote Membership Hash Keys
    I thought about it, but "qk{}" implies that qk() returns a hash REF. As proposed above, at least, it returns a plain hash. If you think qk() should return a hash ref instead, that's a different discussion, but I think...
  • Commented on qk: Quote Membership Hash Keys
    I assume that qa() and qk() would allow to use any character or delimiter pair, just as q(), qq(), and qw() do. That said, I would agree that qa[] is the most natural way of using qa()....
