Simpler, yes. Easier to understand, no - unless you use ASCII codes all day long.

Also, note BrowserUK's solution, your map can be written simply as map chr, 0x21 .. 0x7e;

Update: BrowserUK noted himself :)

    Easier to understand? Debateable. I feel that this

    my @chars = ("a".."z", "A".."Z", 0..9 , split //, qq(!"#$%&'()*+,-./:;<=>?@[\]^_`{|}~));

    looks a bit messy and it is difficult to see at a glance, or even with a long stare, if you've got them all. In fact, I think tilly will have missed one since qq{...} is going to lose the backslash so q{...} might have been better.

    $ perl -le 'print for split m{}, qq{!@#{}[\]&*};' ! @ # { } [ ] & * $ perl -le 'print for split m{}, q{!@#{}[\]&*};' ! @ # { } [ \ ] & * $

    Cheers,

    Update: Added one-liners to show backslash behaviour
