[james28909]: oh ok, i gotcha
[shmem]: "talking of facts, it is irrelevant what you or I think about them." --Georg C. Lichtenberg
[james28909]: is reference the same as aliasing?
[shmem]: no
[shmem]: aliasing means "accessing the same thing by another name"
[james28909]: this makes sense to me. https://stackoverf low.com/questions/ 14224831/meaning- of-referencing-and -dereferencing
[james28909]: stack overflow
[james28909]: i think im going to ditch perl and learn C
[shmem]: for instance: for (@array) { $_ += 1 }; - here $_ inside the loop is an alias for the current element of @array
[james28909]: having to juggle between machines and perl versions and guis and compiling to a portable binary is slightly redundant when i could just use c or something
