in reply to Scalar assignment with loop iterator considered bad?

In this particular scenario, I'd use join(). Why write code to do what a native perl function will do for you? From a functionality perspective, letting join() do the work is probably better than concatenating a bunch of stuff in a loop. I'm sure you could come up with some example where looping was better - if, say, you were doing other stuff at the same time.
