    +=0 (you meant well)

    That won't work little. Try changing this line in showarray: print ref($aref), ": @$aref"; to

    print ref($aref); print "@$aref";
    and you will see that it outputs 'ARRAY' which is wrong. In this case, $aref is a SCALAR reference that is blessed into the class ARRAY.

      that won't work due to your own belssing I assume
      my $blessed = bless($ref, 'ARRAY'); # bless the scalar reference into class ARRAY

        Right. Reread my OP to see why I did that.
