Re: If you believe in Lists in Scalar Context, Clap your Hands
in thread If you believe in Lists in Scalar Context, Clap your Hands
my @stuff = ("this", "that", "and", "the", "other", "thing")[0, 1, 5];
It looks like I just sliced a list.
print "Hello " . ("earthlings", "world");
It looks like I just put a list in scalar context.
However I agree that you can't do the other things you said you can't do without constructing something other than a list. Furthermore I'm the kind of person who never thought much of semantic arguments. I don't care what you call the construct, as long as you understand what it does.
