Someone who needs this tutorial may also need help with concepts like scalar context and when it's implied.

Indeed. My intention was (and is) to link to a tutorial on context, at such time as one is available.

It's clear what's meant if the scalar context is made explicit like so:

$stuff = scalar @things;

Perhaps you missed where I wrote:

You can always force scalar context on an array by using the function named scalar:
print "# Elements: ", scalar(@array), "\n";

I should mention that the lack of comprehensive examples was intentional, and is why I included "Reference" in the title of the tutorial.

A word spoken in Mind will reach its own level, in the objective world, by its own weight
