Re: 1 loop too many in array iteration

in reply to 1 loop too many in array iteration

Square brackets [] return a reference to an array — i.e., a single scalar value. So the line:

my @done = ["$time[5]-$time[4]-$time[3]", $type, $amount];

assigns an array reference to the first element only ($done[0]) of @done. I think you wanted:

my @done = ("$time[5]-$time[4]-$time[3]", $type, $amount);

which populates the array @done with three scalar values.

Hope that helps,
