Perhaps the choice of using the code the programmer did is based on the aesthetic layout?

While you are at it? Why bother reassigning the result of chr to $_? Just drop that line alltogether to get  for(@h1){ print chr; } and of course if your decision is to be based on the number of characters you can go to print chr for(@h1); but getting the smallest WTDI is golf and not obfuscation.

I was trying to follow a structure similar to the original script...

    I'd personally use:
    print map chr, @h1;
    But to each their own. I was just offering some advice.
