in reply to Pointer to a structure in Perl

Perl references are similar to C pointers unless you are working with strings. A perl string in a scalar, not an array of characters as in C. One of perl's greatest strengths is its string manipulation, but note that it is quite different from C. There is no such thing as a pointer/reference to a charater withing a string.
