Just as a note - this beautiful solution works cause Perl flattens arrays.

You can see that when you do:

sub2( [ sub1(), (), () ] );

    How does 'flattening' come into play when there's only one array? I would think 'unwiding' of an array is what takes place.

      There are two arrays ( one inside the other ). The outer array is the anonymous array as shown below:

      sub2( [ sub1() ] ); ^ ^ | | | --------- Inner array ------------ Outer array
      sub 2 now gets the ref of the outer anonymous array which is flattened.
