You may be giving perl a bad reputation! Terse? No, not at all!
Seriously, I'm impressed but glad I don't have to maintain it!
Twice as fast you say. Hmmm. Tempting...

    You should see the recursive version for processing arbitrarially deep nested hashes :)

    On a serious note. I find short to be good for mainatainence. It may require me to look longer before I start making changes, but I consider that a good thing.

    Too many times I've been bitten by zeroing in on what looked to be (or the comments indicated as), a self contained piece of code, only to find out later that there was another piece just off screen that was affected.

    It's a personal thing, but if I don't understand a piece of code froom reading it, then I prefer to experiment (in a test program or with the debugger) until I do, rather than be swayed into believing that I understand it by reading another programmer's, or even my own, comments.
