in reply to Array comparison doesn't work

You cannot unflatten two arrays from the parameter array. If you want to pass two arrays to a subroutine, use a reference:
arrayComp(\@a, \@b); sub arrayComp { my ($aref, $bref) = @_; my @a = @$aref; my @b = @$bref;

Moreover, what do you think using (@a, @b) in the parameter list does?

    Thanks for your help! I was just passing in array like I was passing in variables. I didn't think there would be much difference but thanks for pointing it out.
