Re: When would you choose foreach instead of map?

in reply to When would you choose foreach instead of map?

I just simply don't like map. It has its uses at its times, but for the most part I like my code to be modifiable and debuggable at every instant or iteration. Map compresses the process down way too much for my liking.

There are those perl programmers who try to do as much with as little as possible and then are those of us who like the code to be as readable and mutable as possible.

    I repeat an earlier statement of mine, that not understanding that part of the language does not make it less useful, effective, or in this case, readable. I use map when it is the right choice, and my code is both readable and debuggable.
