in thread Generate the perl sequence 1, 11, 111, ....
I don't understand why that would be error-prone ?
Simply put, the more code you have, the higher the possibility of including an error.
Especially in this case, where there are many symbols packed into a small area and where there are many different common usage of the loop (start at zero, start at one, stop at X, stop before X, etc).
By making it easier to read, it can do nothing but help.
