Looping over a list of values one at a time, two at a time and more
Note! This site is about Perl 6.
If you are looking for a solution for the current production version of Perl 5, please check out
the Perl 5 tutorial.
In Perl 6 the standard way to iterate over the elements of
a list or an array is by using the "for" statement.
A simple version of it looks like this:
This will print out the three values one under the other.
As an explanation syntax:
@fellows is an array with 3 elements in it.
The loop variable ($name) in the above case is automatically
declared in the loop so one does not need to declare it using "my"
and it is still not global. It is scoped to the block of the loop.
The Perl 6 Tricks and Treats newsletter has been around for a while.
If you are interested to get special notification when there is new content
on this site, it is the best way to keep track:
This is a newsletter temporarily running on my personal site (szabgab.com) using Mailman,
till I implement an alternative system in Perl 6.
