in reply to Rook question

another solution:

sub total { my $sum =0; map { $sum += $_ } @_; return $sum; }
Couldn't resist... :-)

    Let's fold a list.

    use List::Util 'reduce'; sub total { return reduce { $a + $b } 0, @_; }
      The above code hardly even resembles Perl as I know it. Got a lot to learn... I've heard at work they use 'map' regularly (I wouldn't say 'frequently'--something about it not processing efficiently with mysql in some contexts). I'll need to read up on that.

        eh? What does map have to do with mysql? O-o

        I can't say I'd choose cowdawg's approach for this question, because map is a bit ill suited for this specific problem. Athanasius's is probably the most idiomatic while still being easy to understand.
