in thread calculate average from range of hash values (optimize)

For the record your second solution corrupts the hash with keys whose value is undef.
Eh? Extraordinarily strange. So a slice lookup autovivifies elements, while a single-element lookup doesn't. Feels like a bug, if you ask me.. certainly counterintuitive. Easy enough to fix, though.
use List::Util qw(sum); sub average { my ($data, $first, $last) = @_; my @values = map { local $_ = $data->{$_}; defined() ? $_ : () } $ +first .. $last; sum(@values) / @values; }

Makeshifts last the longest.
