Nicely done. I always forget the ins-and-outs of tr///. A few improvements:
# 1 2 3 4 5 # 3456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 $_=pop;eval'y/a-z/'.chr(97+pop).'-za-z/';print

And you're at 46 strokes

Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

    Hot++, i was currently at 50 (or 49) strokes. I never think of tr/// vs y///, though (successfully forgot about y/// for readability).

    # 1 2 3 4 5 # 3456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 eval'tr/a-z/'.chr(97+shift).'-za-z/,print for pop'
