in thread [Solved] How does map work?

thanks for the assist. Indeed my use of while was incorrect

Indeed HOP does doe a version of map that takes an iterator, and I'm sure it will just take plugging away at HOP some more, it starts to make sense after a few read throughs...

    Hmm seems like HOP doesn't show how to reimplement plain map.

    But as a side note, perlsub has an example for grep :

    And here’s a reimplementation of the Perl "grep" operator: sub mygrep (&@) { my $code = shift; my @result; foreach $_ (@_) { push(@result, $_) if &$code; } @result; }

    There is one instance where while sets $_ (or at the very least has the appearance to do so), and that's in the special while( <$filehandle> ) {...} construction (or ... while <$filehandle> for that matter, I believe).
