in thread Optimizing the bejeezus out of a sub

foreach my $section ( @_ ) { ... } doesn't copy value from @_ to $section. In the loop the variable $section is merely an alias to a currently selected element in @_ array. You can even modify @_ array by assigning a new value to $section. Example:

# adds 1 to all elements of array foreach my $elem (@arr) { $elem ++; }
