Wow... That's a foldl! In a functional language, that would be called a fold. It's very popular in Haskell.

I like that Perl 6 seems to be taking steps in the direction of functional languages. First lazy lists (0..Inf) and now a fold. :-D

One of the early P6 prototypes was written in Haskell, and there's been a lot of notions lifted from it. (OTOH being an old phart I know [OP] @list as op/list :)
