in reply to To test empty array in perl

If you want to check whether the array is empty.You can do in the following ways.

print "Array isn't empty.Array Values:@array\n" if($array[0]); print "Array isn't empty.Array Values:@array\n" if($#array >= 0);
print "Array isn't empty.Array Values:@array\n" if(@array);

print "Array isn't empty.Array Values:@array\n" if($array[0]); [download] This won't tell you whether the array is empty. What happens when the first index of array has undef or 0.? # my @array = (0, undef, 1, 2, 3); my @array = (undef, undef, 1, 2, 3); print "Array isn't empty.Array Values:@array\n" if($array[0]);
