Thanks for your thoughtful review.


Sounds like OAPs complaining that their tea'n'chat session are getting later and later .... :) But yes, it's too long.


Map adjacent; map adjoining; map adjunct; all of those work.

Since salva pointed out the scala version, I keep looking again at slide/sliding; but they make me think of sliding scales & sliding checksum, neither of which are appropriate here.

As I said elsewhere, many function names (and keywords) do not mean much unless you know what they mean in the context of a computer program.

Take reduce or join or grep or splice. Write the functionality of any of those out in full:

take_a_list_of_values_convert_them_to_their_string_representations_if_ +necessary_intersperse_them_with_this_other_string_and_return_a_single +_string_formed_from_them_all( "\t", @nums);

And it would be ridiculous.

You only know what grep does, because you learnt it, not from the name, so the key things are to be vaguely mnemonic and memorable, and preferably short.

I'm more and more persuaded by overlap & overmap.

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.
