in reply to A little fun with merlyn

hm. from jcwren's code:

'X' => \@char_X, 'Y' => \@char_Y, 'z' => \@char_z,

i'm sure you mean capital Z's there. and really, couldn't this whole chain of stuff be done automaticaly? laziness, man. you've typed basically the same line 50 times.

the reason i call this a recurring bug is that if you own the magnetic perl poetry kit (sadly apparently no longer available), as i do, you will notice upon close inspection that it comes with each of the 25 lowercase letters a through y and a capital Z. apparently perlers are bad with z-capitalization.

    How do you know he didn't do it automatically? :) At any rate, yes you could have it generated programatically. If they weren't lexically declared and were stuck in their own package you could just slurp from the symbol table. But something like this would work in this case where they are lexicals.

    { no strict 'refs'; my @chrs = ( 'a'..'h', 'k', 'm', 'n', 'p'..'z' ); push @chrs, map uc, @chrs; push @chrs, 2..9; $charlist{ $_ } = \@{"char_$_"} foreach @chrs; }
