in reply to How can i print N repeated characters?

for (1..5) { print "-"; }
Which prints the ----- you are looking for.

If you want to print the number of the iteration you could use:
for my $x (0..9) { print $x; }
Which outputs 0123456789

    Or you could always do it this way:

    my $n = 5; print "-" x $n;
