in reply to looping over multiple arrays

Very nice. There is one addition that I would suggest; allowing for parallel undefs in the arrays. Otherwise the iterator will reset if all the arrays happen to contain undef at the same index, even if there are more elements later in the arrays. Here's one possible solution:
sub parallel_it { my @arr_refs = @_; my $iter = 0; return sub { if (not grep $iter < @$_, @arr_refs) { $iter = 0; return; } my @return = map { $_->[$iter] } @arr_refs; $iter++; return @return; }; }

    Oops, I had that taken care of in an alternate version (that worked on copies of the arrays and thus couldn't be reused if arrays were updated), but a few cells back in the visual cortex must have malfunctioned and I didn't see it here. Thanks for pointing it out.
