in thread A better (ie.more concise) way to write this?

I'd do it like this:@a = map { ++$_ % 10 } @a;

That pretty much defeats the purpose. Instead of:

$things{ $thing }{$someotherkey}[$someindex]{$somekey}[ $_ ] = $things +{ $thing }{$someotherkey}[$someindex]{$somekey}[ $_ ] + 1 % 10 for 1 +.. 10;

You get:

@{ $things{ $thing }{$someotherkey}[$someindex]{$somekey} }[ 1 .. 10 ] + = map{ ++$_ % 10 } @{ $things{ $thing }{$someotherkey}[$someindex]{$ +somekey} }[ 1 .. 10 ];

    Then , if you want to modify an existing data structure, what about using the fact that modifying $_ will modify the original array? Something like this, shown under the debugger:
    DB<1> @a = 1..9; DB<2> map{ $_ = ++$_% 10 } @a; DB<3> x @a 0 2 1 3 2 4 3 5 4 6 5 7 6 8 7 9 8 0 DB<4>
    Well, this obviously works, but something like $c = ++$c is, I believe, not defined in C and probably also not in Perl (i.e. the implementor if free to do whatever). It could be changed to:
    map { $_ ++; $_ = $_ % 10} @a;
    This would probably be more secure against any change of implementation.

[stevieb]: A couple of years ago I went to Curacao on a business trip which is a few parallels south of Canary Islands, but one thing I liked was it was 90 degrees at all times consistently. Much different experience than living in Canada :)
