in thread Summing Variables in foreach loop

A more normal way to use reduce would be to use the + operator in there, not +=. Using += could give the impression that the variable $a can be usefully modified within the block.

say reduce { $a + count_zeros($cgs,$b) } 0, <DATA>;
use Moops; class Cow :rw { has name => (default => 'Ermintrude') }; say Cow->new->name

    A even more normal way would be avoid reduce entirely :)
    say sum 0, map count_zeros($cgs,$_), <DATA>;
