in reply to Re^3: array pop
in thread array pop

or more clearly, concisely and efficiently:

#! perl use strict; use warnings; my @array = ('a' .. 'e'); print 'Original @array contents: ', join(', ', @array), "\n"; my @popped = splice @array, 0, 3; print '@array now contains: ', join(', ', @array), "\n"; print 'The deleted elements: ', join(', ', @popped), "\n";

splice is your friend.

stevieb is writing a little CUFP on how to control analog pins on an arduino from a Linux machine via I2C in light of Perl, JavaScript and Strandbeests. It also is a good real-world use-case to test my I2C dist.
[stevieb]: I just don't feel like going hardcore on anything today, so I thought I'd *use* my software instead of just write it
