introduction to web programming Statement Blocks All control structures are divided into the control statement (which we will explain below) and the statement block. The statement block is simply a group of commands that are executed together. This block is grouped by enclosing the commands within curly braces ({}). For example, the following is a simple statement block.

    {
    statement one
    statement two
    statement three
    }

Perl will execute each statement in a statement block from beginning to end as a group. When, how, or if the script will execute the commands however, is determined by the control statement.
