Well, and someone please correct me if I mislead on this post,

If you think about the code:
foreach $each (@list) {
$each *= 2;
$newlist$i = $each;
++$i;
}


From Programming Perl: Note that the loop variable becomes a reference to the element itself, rather than a copy of the element. Hence, modifying the loop variable will modify the original array.

The snippet loops through the contents of @list and as each cell gets looked at, it is assigned to $each. $each is then modified by multiplying by 2. Modifying $each, modifies the value in the shell, due to the way foreach is constructed in perl. I believe that is all correct. If I have made any mistakes ( other than grammar, and spelling ), someone please tell me.

[LanX]: yes and Egypt (like Turkey and Russia) belongs to two continents
[choroba]: Also Europe and Asia are geographically one continent, the division is political
[robby_dobby]: I always thought everything on the other side of Suez to be Africa. That's an entire continent
[LanX]: Sinai_Peninsula
[robby_dobby]: choroba: If you're talking of Eurasia, it's only true of the erstwhile Constantinople/ Ottoman empire
[LanX]: yes correct, but Sinai is not on the other side
[LanX]: Organizing a YAPC in a tourist ressort is not a bad idea ...
[LanX]: ... and we could swap to our first YAPC Africa the following year when organizing in Hurghada
