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

    Have a nice day
    All decision is left to your taste

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