Though it's nice to show different ways to do it, I feel obliged to point out that many folks disapprove of using map in void context.
Though map in void context no longer suffers the huge performance penalty it once did, some still consider it poor style (see, for example, the performance-related discussion in this old thread).
I personally applaud the simple stylistic advice summary given in Effective Perl Programming, in the item "Use foreach, map and grep as appropriate", namely:
- Use foreach to iterate read-only over each element of a list
- Use map to create a list based on the contents of another list
- Use foreach to modify elements of a list
- Use grep to select elements in a list
