    $num = 12345; # empties the array @a = ($num); # or $a[0] = $num; print '$a[0] is ', $a[0], "\n";

    Just some fun:

    #!/usr/bin/perl -w my @a; my $num = "12345"; # most likely the best way to do it: @a = split(//,$num); foreach (@a) { print "$_\n"; }; # but this is kind of fun: @a = (); #clear array my $l = length($num); for (my $x = "0"; $x < $l; $x++ ) { push(@a, substr($num, $x, 1)); }; foreach (@a) { print "$_\n"; }; # random: @a = (); #clear array for (my $x = "0"; $x < $l; $x++ ) { my $rand = rand($l); push(@a, substr($num, $rand, 1)); }; foreach (@a) { print "$_\n"; };
