It is not at all clear (unless you follow--or at least look at--the link) that "traditionally" means Perl 1. Many of those votes probably really meant: "Perl 5 just the way I first learnt it on the knee of me grandpappy".

[sierpinski]: I've never seen $#$var before.
[LanX]: $list cops be an array ref
[LanX]: could
[LanX]: $#array gives the length
[LanX]: no sorry ...
[sierpinski]: so that would just be deferencing it...
[LanX]: the last index!
[LanX]: yes
[sierpinski]: yeah I guess $list is a reference.. yeah
[sierpinski]: why is it the last index and not the first? because the length of the array becomes the index?
