in reply to Counting elements in array

I prefer the following

my @Array = (1,2,3,4); say 0+@Array; #@Array as a number)

Its clearer than

say scalar(@Array);  #@Array as a scalar)

If you just want to print the size, this is the simplest way.

print "size of array: " . @array . ".\n";

All is well
