Thanks for the reminder.  I, too, have started using a bit more  
functional-style Perl of late.  It's good to be reminded of the  

And I'm also weighing the functional map and grep versus (as you say)  
non-functional foreach loops.  I'm still on the fence for some uses,  
but trying to grow into the (Higher Order Perl) way of doing some list  

Thanks for the thread and comments, all....
