    If we're doing straight translations...

    map { pox $_ } $montagues, $capulets;

    or more elaborately

    require House; map { pox $_ } map { House->new($_) } qw(Montague Capulet);

    /me realizes he will now be whacked with the void context stick...

    pox $_ foreach map { House->new ($_) } qw (Montague Capulet);

    Update: to handle the multiple-editions problem pointed out by andye below, add

    BEGIN{ *plague = \&pox;}
    to the above. :-)

      Very good! I'm amused. But s/pox/plague/ (sorry, I'm a pedant, I know).

      Update: I've just double-checked and, interestingly, both plague and pox are right - it varies between the original sources.

        Bah, can't figure how to reply to the original message. (My first contribution ever, and it has to be this .. oh, the shame! The humanity!)

        for (1) { for (1) { my @breach = ("dear", "friends"); }} # Henry V, of course # I know, hardly obtuse enough, but then being a mere novice ... my ($prick, $tickle, $wrong); my ($bleed, $laugh, $revenge) = undef; if ($prick) { $bleed = 1; } if ($tickle) { $laugh = 1; } if ($wrong) { $revenge = 1; } # Or warn "bleed" if /prick/; warn "laugh" if /tickle/; warn "revenge" if /wrong/;
