in reply to Getting single element from an array

print ("adf","ff","f"); # Gladly prints the list print ("adf","ff","f")[1]; #Gives a syntax error

Think to print() as a subroutine: you can write myfunc(...); but myfunc(...)[1]; is wrong.

With a "gift package ( )", perl will be happy: myfunc( (...][1] );

perl -e 'sub myfunc { return @_;}; my @res = myfunc(('a','b','c')[1]);print @res;' OK

perl -e 'sub myfunc { return @_;}; my @res = myfunc('a','b','c')[1];print @res;' WRONG

[TCLion]: at least that's the plan
[1nickt]: Corion this looks good, from the pod: "there are 9000+ variations that are detected correctly in the test files (see t/data/* for most of them). If you can think of any that I do not cover, please let me know."
[TCLion]: some moron put the date like this : Mon Feb 20 09:31:30 2017
[Corion]: 1nickt: Yes, the module sounds promising indeed
[1nickt]: "putting the date in correct order" how?
[Corion]: TCLion: Whee ;)
[TCLion]: need to put like this : 2017-02-20 09:30:53
