in thread How do I train myself to write more Perl-ish Perl, rather than C-ish Perl?

I'm with you on this. It is particularly true when you are writing perl in a shop where most people don't know it, or if perl is not your primary language. Using a C loop may not be as concise, and maybe not as fast, but almost anyone who has ever written a program will be able to understand it.
