in thread How do I tighten this with map?

I'll bet dragonchild thought of this and omitted it for some reason. Not being as wise I'll go ahead and put it out there. This is the same solution without the temporary @files array.
opendir(DIR, $directory) or die $!; my %fileHash = map { (/^(\w{3}\d*):log\.$date$/ => $_); } grep /^\w{3}\d*:log\.$date$/, readdir(DIR); closedir DIR;
I also took the liberty of adding a '\' before the '.' in your regex. It looked like you meant a literal '.' not 'any character'. I think dragonchild's is more easily understood but I like this one.

UPDATE: Even though this works and is all true, look a little lower to japhy's. It's better.

Ira,

    The reason I put the temporary @files array is because it might not be temporary. Also, it enhances readability. Just cause you can doesn't mean you should. :-)

    Don't go borrowing trouble. For programmers, this means Worry only about what you need to implement.

      Of course you are right. I thought this same thing, and tried to allude to these problems in my post. But I am young and brash and still try to reduce, perhaps too far.

      Mostly because it's fun.

      On an aside, if the @files array is not needed then japhy's solution which removes one whole regex evaluation must be considered better by some definition of efficiency. Those things are expensive.

      Ira,
