in reply to SuDoKu solver

Cool code (++)!

I was attempting to re-write the $grid array-ref initialization in a more "Lazy" manner, using the "x" operator, but the implementation of that operator optimizes in such a way that the operand gets evaluated only once. I had to settle on "map" :

my $grid=[ map {[ map {$init} 1..9 ]} 1..9 ];
If anyone can accomplish this using the "x" operator in a non-obfu way, I'd love to hear it.

    I initially wrote this and it appeared correct according to Test::More::is_deeply(). However, despite the test, it is wrong since the inner array ref is copied rather than recreated (which is probably what you are alluding to above).
    my $grid = [([($init) x 9]) x 9]; # ! wrong

    So, perhaps somethings like this:

    my $grid = [map {[($init) x 9]} 1..9];

    I was really addicted to Sudoku puzzles a few weeks ago, but I'm finally getting my life back. :-)
