in reply to using map and swap (aka substitute)

Since you are overwriting the original array with the results, the simplest solution is:

s/_string$// for @list;

Which mutates the array in-place, thus avoids constructing two lists (in and out of map) as well as 'curing' the perceived problem.

And if you wanted to create a new list from the modified values whilst retaining the original array unmodified, I'd probably do it this way also:

my @list = ...; my @newList = @list; s/_string$// for @newList;

    my @newList = @list; s/_string$// for @newList

    Or just:

    s/_string$// for my @newList = @list;
