in thread Converting output from numeric values to text

Couldn't .... resist .... temptation:

my %month = map { $_ => 1 } qw(jan feb mar apr may jun jul aug sep oct + nov dec);
Or a hash slice:
my %month; my @month = qw(jan feb mar apr may jun jul aug sep oct nov dec); @month{@month} = (1) x @month;
UDPATE:
sorry about that - please allow me to fix it:
my @month = qw(jan feb mar apr may jun jul aug sep oct nov dec); my %month = map { $_ => $month[$_] } (0..$#month); ... $m_name = $month{$m_number};

    I don't think your code produces what the original poster OnTheEdge wanted. Yours would result in a hash with the month names as keys and 1 as values for each.

    He wants to convert month numbers into month names.

    $m_name = qw(jan feb mar apr may jun jul aug sep oct nov dec)[$m_numbe +r];
