1. Instead of this:

my $displayed; foreach my $s (split(//, $word)) { if (exists($correct_guesses{$s})) { $displayed .= $s; } else { $displayed .= "*"; } $displayed .= " "; }


my $displayed = join" ", map { exists $correct_guesses{$_} ? $_ : '*' } split//, $word;

2. And instead of this:

print "Fails remaining: $turns\n"; print "Wrong guesses: ", join(" ", keys %wrong_guesses), "\n"; print "Your guess: ";


print "Fails remaining: $turns\n", "Wrong guesses: ", join(" ", keys %wrong_guesses), "\n", "Your guess: ";

3. And instead of this:

if (!$guess =~ /[a-z]/ ...


if ($guess !~ /[a-z]/ ...
