'boldital' => do { my $i = curry \&wrap_with_html => ( 'i' ); my $b = curry \&wrap_with_html => ( 'b' ); sub { $b->( $i->( @_ ) ) } },

Neat use of =>. As for composition, as an inveterate Haskell hacker (well, hacker-wannabe), I'd prefer to have that as a primitive, too:

sub compose { my ($f, $g) = @_; return sub { $f->($g->(@_)); } } # ... 'boldital' => &compose(&curry(\&wrap_with_html, 'i'), &curry(\&wrap_with_html, 'b')),
The idea of functions that operate on functions and return other functions is much more useful than it first seemed to me. If you never think about functions as first-class objects, having a compose function seems incredibly redundant. Once you start building functions on-the-fly, composition becomes indispensible.

I guess I should write part 2 of my Perlesque Intro to Haskell, then.
