Re: [Lynn] Using Counter

Lynn, there might still be a small error in the code after the correction suggested earlier.

 for ($l = 0; $l<=$RUNS; $l++)

looks like a possible error because if $RUNS equals 10, you will run 11 tiBesides mes through the for loop, which is likely to be different from what you want.

Besides, on a purely stylistic point of view, you might consider a more "perlish" syntax.

The code above is better rewritten as:

 for $l (0..$RUNS) {

or, better (but no longer exactly equivalent):

 for my $l (0..$RUNS) {

as it is simpler and more idiomatic and it runs faster (it is equivalent to the above, so it has the same bug if your code had the possible I mentioned.

In fact, since you do not seem to use $l in your loop, it could be even further simplified by dropping $l altogether:

 for (0..$RUNS) {
