in reply to Rook question

Hello squimby, and welcome to the Monastery!

Any tips for 'Perl'ifying this?

Building on NetWallah’s answer:

sub total { my $sum = shift; $sum += $_ for @_; return $sum; }

See shift and Statement Modifiers.

Update: Also read-up on $_ in General Variables.

Hope that helps,
