  • I thought you meant function prototyping as in
    perlsub:

                  Perl supports a very limited kind
                  of compile-time argument checking
                  using function prototyping. If
                  you declare

                          sub mypush (\@@)

                  then "mypush()" takes arguments
                  exactly like "push()" does.

    But it is the prototyping which you either ship
    or throwaway.

    I like that you can learn from your
    mistakes. Doing things right is doing
    the right thing. Doing things wrong is
    education.
