in reply to shift @ARGV not working

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; foreach my $i(0..$#ARGV){ printf "\$ARGV[%d] = \"%s\"\n",$i,$ARGV[$i]; } while(my $arg=shift @ARGV){ printf "%s\n",$arg; } # # -------------- 8< snip! 8<------------- $ ./ a b c d e f g $ARGV[0] = "a" $ARGV[1] = "b" $ARGV[2] = "c" $ARGV[3] = "d" $ARGV[4] = "e" $ARGV[5] = "f" $ARGV[6] = "g" a b c d e f g
I think the issue you are a having is you didn't shift prior to setting $argument.

    Howdy blue_cowdawg,
    How could you miss that? The issue he was having is variable scope issue. How does the OP think he would be able to print the variable, when it was scoped to the if block?
    Moreover, if the OP has used strict and warnings, he would have seen the red gauge
    I think you need a break from the keyboard. You are working to hard...
