  • Commented on No semicolon after return values
    I used to use the statement without explicit return for constants and subroutines which has error message as their return value. sub readOnly ( $; ) { shift->read_write } or sub validate ( $;$ ) { my $error; ... $error;...
  • Commented on Just want to know WNOHANG...
    use POSIX qw(:sys_wait_h); will increase about 1MiB of memory in my system. This may be or may not be considerable. but I guess using several modules would result in 3~5MiB increase without any useful things. It's an method to avoid...

    I realized that an installer can do this. but sometimes I put this kind of script in a archive or USB like using a PortableApps and in that case, this ensure the correct value of constant. thank you for reply....

    package MyApp;
    our $WNOHANG_VALUE ||= `$^X -MPOSIX=:sys_wait_h -e "print WNOHANG;"`;

    sigh maybe useful for a long-time running program if you are…

    Acme::ReturnValue might give you a few ideas beyond 1, not 1;

    Although I see the point, I believe in keeping a constant style throughout your code, so if you end all your statements with ';' this should be consistent with all statements.

    This is the same problem I have with languages like JavaScript which allow you to do things like:

    if( true ){



    If you decide in a way to do it, you should stick to it, otherwise it can generate confusion in the long term.

  • Steven Haryanto commented on No semicolon after return values

    Interesting thought. I personally always add a semicolon for the last statement of the block (though I also seldom use explicit 'return'). Unless they are inline, e.g.:

    for (...) { stmt; last-stmt }

    Dunno. These are just habits, I guess.
