in reply to Index of Items in Array using foreach loop

Don't loop through the array; loop through the indices!

use strict; use warnings; my @SampleArray = ("one", "two", "three"); for my $ArrayIndex ( 0 .. $#SampleArray ) { printf( "%s is at location %d in the array\n", $SampleArray[$ArrayIndex], $ArrayIndex, ); }

Or just use a sufficiently modern version of Perl...

use v5.12; use strict; use warnings; my @SampleArray = ("one", "two", "three"); while (my ($ArrayIndex, $ArrayItem) = each @SampleArray) { printf( "%s is at location %d in the array\n", $ArrayItem, $ArrayIndex, ); }

Update: Although each @array was only added to Perl as of 5.12, Array::Each::Override provides a working implementation of each @array for Perl going back to 5.8.

package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name
