in reply to counting backward

perl -e 'print "$_ " for (reverse (0..10))'
should work, although not necesarily the most intuitive solution.

    Heh, I wasn't even asking about the solutions - more about why an inline reverse operator wasn't part of the implementation (somewhat answered quoting the doc) and why this didn't present a warning.

    That said, I love the conversation and seeing foreach (-$var .. 0) { -$_ } - the memory use of reverse and the simplicity of the solution made me say 'damn'.
