in reply to Seek one liner for distributing an integer

A little late to the game, but here goes:
my %result = map { $_ => ( int($num / @array) + ($num % @array ? ($num--, 1) : 0) ) } @array;

One statement, strict and warnings clean, and if you take out the whitespace, it'll fit on one line. Doesn't work on negative $num though.
