in reply to How do you define "elegant"?

Defining elegeant would be likely as successful as defining artful or equally worse, tasteful.

It's a very subjective quality.
Along the lines of the map example and tinita's post above, elegant programming style in Perl might be something lean and abbreviated yet fully operational that you would not yet have stamped as being ordinary or everyday practice yet.
