in reply to Return a list or an iterator

You may be interested in Damian's talk, "Sufficiently Advanced Technologies", podcast at He mentions some refinements on this technique, such as returning an object with boolean overloads so that while ($iter) {...} will correctly set $_ on each iteration.
Opinions my own; statements of fact may be in error.
