One should even be able to shorten it to (can't test right now)

 grep { (0,1,1,0)[ $_ % 4 ] } 0..12;

But it's not as DRY, cause you need to change the 4 if you change the list.

And of course it's not answering the OP s real question to filter any list.

    I was about to say it also creates a shitload of scalars, but it doesn't. `0,1,1,0` repeatedly places the same 4 scalars on the stack. They are created at compile-time and associated with the opcode that returns them. Not bad
