in reply to syntax error with map in list context

Hmm.. interesting.. Played with a bit, and found that this works:
my %data=map { +"Player number $_", [ map { 1 + int rand(10) } 1 .. 5 ] } 1 .. 10;
I'm can't explain why, but hopefully someone will help clarify.. must be related to evaluation order or something like that.

Two side comments .. This does (nearly) the same thing:
my %data=map { $_ => [ map { 1 + int rand(10) } 1 .. 5 ] } 1 .. 10;
First change is using => instead of a comma -- this makes it more obvious to the reader that you're constructing key-value pairs. Second is just making the key be the player number -- this might be useful to you later in the code, and then you can include the text "Player number" only when you're actually print'ing out the data later.

[marto]: I gave up reading HN at all, and feel much better for it :P
[Corion]: Now, how to best automate that Google search ... :-)
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, I'm also short of not reading it at all. I already stopped reading it in the morning because it gave me a foul mood.
[Corion]: The good posts on HN are the non-computing posts. Most of the other stuff is maybe relevant to you if you are 20 and live in Silicon Valley...
[Corion]: Two attributes that don't describe me.
[Corion]: Maybe I should also write a curator for HN or simply not read it anymore, like you do.
