in reply to Subroutine chaining idiom requested

Hmmm... I've never read that, but to just construct one on my own:
$agenda = [ sub { "Hello" }, sub { scalar reverse shift }, sub { chop +shift } ]; chain($agenda, [ ]); ### BEGIN GOLF MODE ### sub chain($$) { my@x=@{+pop};foreach(@{+shift}){@x=$_->(@x)}@x } ### END GOLF MODE ###

Update: Fixed argument-modification error, thanks to tilly for pointing that out.

    Did someone say golf?
    sub chain{(*f,*_)=@_;@_=&$_ for@f;@_}
    Of course you probably want strict compliant and it is bad style to modify your arguments in place. In which case it is probably better to make that:
    sub chain{my($f,$a)=@_;$a=[&$_(@$a)]for@$f;@$a}
    which is still reasonable...
