I agree that whitespace can be a big difference. That's actually my problem; if that was broken up into lines, I'd say it was mostly OK. If you get this:

@_ = join "\n", map {/$complicated_regex/} split '', join ',', reverse sort map {lc} map {do_backflips($_)} keys %{ $var->{$something} } ;

Imagine some more assignments on the left and some more semicolons on the right and it's pretty much equivalent to reading any other code (except that you have to read it backwards).

I agree that even my first example as it stands isn't nearly as confusing as my second with the referencing. At least the flow of the first is linear; nesting things is much worse.

    [james28909]: was downvoted and left without a reply. go figure
    [holli]: but then you DO give a fuck
    [1nickt]: I don;t think beliefs should be down-voted, just behaviours.
    [james28909]: im not quite how to explain it any better nick. you evolved from ignorance to intelligence. not the other way. the universe evolves from gas coulds and debris into planets stars and galaxies ect. it doesnt happen any other way. hence it has ....
    [james28909]: some kind of logic behind it
    [james28909]: and that is also anothe rpoint i made, i think it has to do with perception of the world around you. most people think of evolution on a human scale. why could life evolve on this planet? because this planet evolved in this solar system. and so on.
    [holli]: here's something for you to watch, James. I think you will like it
    [erix]: for the record: I have not downvoted anyone on that subthread that was my fault
    [james28909]: there are all kinds of things that had to happen to let life come to be. but at the same time, life may not be the end goal IF there is any kind of end goal lol
    [james28909]: well who is the person who gets to decide which behaviour is worthy of a downvote? a person with their own beliefs? xD
