( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

each is an iterator. Foreach loops works on list. You're asking if it's possible to cut a piece of wood with a screwdriver.

A foreach loop (whether using the for or foreach keyword) calls the list building expression once, and iterates over the resulting list.

A C-style for loop (whether using the for or foreach keyword) could, since it's really a while loop with bells and whistles.

Since you can probably cut a piece of wood with a screwdriver if you tried hard enough,

for my $pair ( sub { my @pairs; while (my ($k,$v) = each %h) { push @pairs, [$k,$v] } @pairs }->() ) { my ($k,$v) = @$pair; ... }
But using the appropriate tool is better.
while (my ($k,$v) = each %h) { ... }
or
for my $k (keys %h) { my $v = $h{$k}; ... }
