in reply to ~~ and list literal

there is no "list literal" in perl only a array literal.

parens just do precedence groupings, the comma is the "scalar list operator".

You need list context for it to work like you expect it.

Maybe a look at the "brackets vs comma" talk might help.

    "List literal" is mentioned like a dozen times in the Llama book. I think that means it exists :)
