Scalar glob is a scary thing, maybe even "considered harmful." For another interesting application, see this golf entry.

    It's not the scalar glob that scares me. It's the use of glob for non-file things :)

    I'd probably just use a list, or an array if I need it multiple times:

    for ('A'..'F', 0..9, qw/P Q R/) { ... }
    Update - Hmm... I misread the glob, and thought the }{ parts were just commas. Sorry :)

    - Yes, I reinvent wheels.
