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.

True laziness is hard work
