It is not "a sign of a newbie" to use more source-code lines.

To the contrary, indeed. Just recently, I was hacking together a piece of code that featured a map within a map. Sure, the whole thing fitted on one "line", if your definition of "line" is somewhat liberal:

$some_object->one_method->other_method( [map { ... } map {...} @$sourc +e_aref] )

Which, in reality, looked more like:

$some_object->one_method->other_method( [ map { ... } map { ... } @$source_aref ]);

But then I was looking at it, and I shook my head. Sure, it worked. But was it "clean" code? Not by a long stretch: I could either slap multiple lines on comments on it, explaining what was going on, or refactor the whole thing:

use subs qw( fribble_aref frobble_aref ); my $results_aref = fribble_aref frobble_aref $source_aref ; my $other_object = $some_object->one_method; $other_object->other_method( $results_aref ); sub fribble_aref { return [map { ... } @{+shift}]; } sub frobble_aref { return [map { ... } @{+shift}]; }

The final solution definitely took more lines, but it also was way more comprehensible.
