in thread Print name of array

A reference by itself does not know what variables points to the same data. This is because the array your reference points to does not have to be accessible through a normal array variable. There could also be multiple variables pointing to the same Data. The reference only knows, what type of data it points to and where that data is. If you need labels for those lists, you might want to use a Hash of Arrays.
