in reply to How to make it simple?

Naming variables sequentially, then wanting to do the same thing to many of them, is almost always a sign that they shouldn't be separate variables, but rather elements of a larger structure.

Just a clue.

    Update: Argh! I just re-read the node and discovered I just wrote a bad re-implementation of esskar's code.

    Update2: Here is essentially what I was thinking, implemented correctly:

    #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my @array = qw( a..a b...b c....c d.....d e......e f.......f g........ +g h.........h i..........i j.j k..k l...l ); foreach ( do { my @subset = splice( @array,0,8 ); my @chunk = @subset[1..6]; } ) { s/\.//g; print $_,"\n"; }

    Here is what I orginally posted:

    And on that note...

    my @chunk = splice(@array,0,8); s/\.//g foreach (@smallchunk);

    Or skipping the intermediate array:

    s/\.//g foreach ( splice(@array,0,8) );

    I suppose I should test that code. I think in Perl, but I have the vocabulary of a two-year-old ;)
