my $t = 0; grep { $t^=1 } LIST
using the XOR operator in XOR-equal is bordering on line-noise. This seems to have a low likely hood of being understood on the first pass by the next person to see it. (This next person had to go check perlop). That said, I'm totally using it the next time I play golf.

Mixing both of your two forms we get these nice options:

my $t = 0; #even elements #my $t= 1; #odd elements grep { $t++ % 2 } LIST
my $t = 0; map { $t++ %2 ? $_ : () } LIST
Am I wrong to expect people to be more familiar with '%' than with '^'?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
