... the C-style loop will likely get you scolded on this website.

If you've never made a fencepost error, I salute you. The rest of us mortals seem to benefit from not having to worry about such things.

    Of course I've made fence post errors. But then on constructs that would be really awkward to do without C-style for loops.

    I don't think I've ever made a fence post error on

    for (my $i = 0; $i < @array; $i++) { ... }
    where I would not modify @array or $i, nor use $i to look elsewhere in the array. But then, this is about the only case where I would not use a C-style for loop, but a Perl style foreach.
