for the sake of simplicity, brevity (and less duration of memory footprint), I'll use the anonymous array method.

Neither of your OP snippets uses an anonymous array.

Your function returns a list, which you either: assign to an array which you then process using for; or you process the list directly with for.

But yes, there is no purpose to assigning to the array, unless you needed to retain the returned values beyond the loop.
