    map is a looping function to apply an expression or a block to every item in a list (each item in turn assigned to $_), and collect/return the list of results. It's like:
    my @results; foreach(@_) { push @results, &$CODE(); } return @results;
    where $CODE is the expression (delimited by a comma) or block (no delimiter) in the first argument.


    @output = map $_*2, 1 .. 10;
    which is identical in result to
    @output = map { $_*2 } 1 .. 10;
    and which return the even numbers from 2 to 20; the double of all numbers between 1 and 10.
