in reply to Newbie: query about array assignment

You can use B::Deparse (if reading the docum-entation is not enough) to see what perl thinks your code means:
perl -MO=Deparse -e '@stuff = "This","That","Other";' @stuff = 'This', '???', '???';
The question marks mean the constants were optimized away since they were used in a void context (as warnings would have told you).
