in reply to in_array and skipping foreach

Any ideas how I can make this better?

Any will do it! Specifically, the any function from the List::Util module:

use List::Util qw( any ); next if any { $_ eq $offer{retailer} } @ignore_merchants;

Many cases of using grep in a conditional can be written using any instead, as it can short-circuit after the first true result.

Of course, a hash is better if you're going to be doing this check a lot of times.

I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
