in reply to [Solved] Generate list from a to arbitrary letter

Building a list from a list looks like a job for map. But unless order is really important, and it isn't just alphabetical order (using sort is easy enough), a list of pairs looks like something that could have its place in a hash. So, based on kennethk's answer (Edit: and similar AnomalousMonk's proposition):

$current = 'a'; my %cds = map { $_ => $current++ } @cd_names;
It shouldn't be much trouble to turn that into a array of arrays if needed :).
