in reply to @array elements multiplication with another array elements.

Here's another example using pairwise from the lovely List::MoreUtils package...

use List::MoreUtils qw( pairwise ); my @array1 = (3,4,6,5,8); my @array2 = (2,2,4,5,1); my @mults = pairwise { $a * $b } @array1, @array2; print "@mults\n";
perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    Wow, how can pairwise tell where the end of 1st array is? There was always the problem feature that regardless whether you write
    my @array1 = (3,4,6,5,8); my @array2 = (2,2,4,5,1);
    my @array1 = (3,4,6,5,8,2,2,4); my @array2 = (5,1);
    using it with coma always results in flattened list:
    is equivalent to
    and yet pairwise deals with it:
    c:\>perl -le "use List::MoreUtils qw/pairwise/; @a=(1..5);@b=(11..15); + print for pairwise {$a+$b} @a, @b" 12 14 16 18 20 c:\>perl -le "use List::MoreUtils qw/pairwise/; @a=(1..5, 11,12);@b=(1 +3..15); print for pairwise {$a+$b} @a, @b" 14 16 18 4 5 11 12

      It uses a prototype of &\@\@. That means the two arrays get implicitly turned into arrayrefs by the Perl parser. The body of the sub just sees a coderef and two arrayrefs - not a flattened list. See perlsub.

      perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
        That's true! Wow, thanks, first example of prototypes being useful
        c:\>perl -le "sub f(\@\@) { print 'array ', ++$cnt ,': ', join ' ', @$ +_ for @_ } @a=(1..5, 11,12);@b=(13..15); f @a, @b" array 1: 1 2 3 4 5 11 12 array 2: 13 14 15
