in thread an easier way with grep, map, and/or sort?

If there's one thing that really irritating, it's these endless chained "if" statements that do very little but take up a ton of room.

I couldn't agree more-- that's pretty much what motivated this question!

It looks like it escaped from some long forgotten COBOL code if you ask me.

never had the pleasure of even seeing COBOL code, but as I was trying to write perl, I would far prefer it look like idiomatic perl than anything else ;)

Thanks for your response. I'll try it out just as soon as I get my head all the way around how it works :D

[Corion]: usemodperl: Naah, you're just being unreasonable. It's not hard to download https URLs, and we've shown you ways to avoid downloading at all, and ways to keep downloading via http possible. You reject both.
[choroba]: Also, try asking at IRC
[usemodperl]: corion baby you have done nothing of the sort
[usemodperl]: asking how to download from cpan with core perl via http is unreasonable???
[Corion]: usemodperl: No, asking is not unreasonable. Insisting that it must always keep working for you is unreasonable.
