in thread what's this loo code?

This is a bogus explanation I'm afraid. The anonymous array you speak of doesn't exist afaik, but I wouldn't bet my life on it. But what I'm sure of is that then assign the size of the array to $= is wrong. From perlop: "a list assignment in scalar context returns the number of elements produced by the expression on the right hand side of the assignment." What's on the LHS is irrelevant.   print scalar(($a, $b) = ('a','b','c')); # prints '3'

[1nickt]: thx chacham. Not sure if it would be more work defining the new acronym or explaining the grey areas of the existing one :-/
[stevieb]: Nick... can you include a comma-separated list to the operation, or a wildcard?
