  • my $array = Array::AsHash->new({array => [qw/foo bar one 1 two 2/]});

    while (my ($k, $v) = $array->each) {
      print "Starting loop\n" if $array->first;
      print "Key is $k.  Value is $v\n";
      print "Ending loop\n"   if $array->last;
    }

    That makes me think Adrian [perl.org] was right that the iterator should be factored out.

    Nice work, in any case. I think I can think of a script or two which would have been nicer to write with code like that. Perl’s builtin data types are powerful, but things get really fiddly if you need something more than they can express natively.

    • I'm need to do some more work on this module today. I think I will look into the iterator.
