    my @newlist = map { BLOCK } @oldlist;

    Is basically just a shortcut for:

    my @newlist = ();
    for my $item ( @oldlist ) {
        local $_ = $item;
        my @got = do { BLOCK };
        push @newlist, @got;

    And if the block is just a simple expression like a regexp, then you don't need the curly braces. So for example, to lowercase a bunch of strings:

    my @lowercase = map lc, @uppercase;
