E.g.you can tie an iterator to a variable.

I'm not fluent in Haskell, so gimme an example and I'll see what's possible.

Well, unfortunately it's not trivial to realize LISPish macros in Perl 5, otherwise most language extensions I can think of would be easily possible.

Compare Re^2: Dumping variables but DRY and simple for a use case for a macro.
