You are correct choroba.
Thanks for pointing out my error :)

perldata - Context highlights the difference between scalar(array) and scalar(list):

If you evaluate an array in scalar context, it returns the length of the array.
(Note that this is not true of lists, which return the last value, like the C comma operator,
nor of built-in functions, which return whatever they feel like returning.)
