  • Both examples make sense to me, but if you've got Perl coders who don't code Perl *all* the time, I think the second example would require a few more brain cycles than the the first. This is especially true if there's one part they don't remember--like the fact that split returns a list. The temporary variable re-enforces this by showing it. Besides, memory is cheap :)
