I'd say:
my %op = ( 'toupper'=>sub{uc(@_)}, ... );
instead of shift

    Please test your code before you offer it as a solution:
    $ perl -wE 'my $t = sub { uc(@_)}; say $t->("foo")' 1

    uc has a prototype which forces scalar context, so uc(@_) evaluates to the number of elements in @ (upper-cased).
