in thread Deleting undef values from a hash

Rafael applied my documentation patch yesterday:

-Returns each element so deleted or the undefined value if there was n +o such -element. Deleting from C<$ENV{}> modifies the environment. Deleting + from +Returns a list with the same number of elements as the number of elem +ents +for which deletion was B<attempted>. Each element of that list consi +sts of +either the value of the element deleted, or the undefined value. In +scalar +context, this means that you get the value of the last element delete +d (or +the undefined value if that element did not exist). + + %HASH = (foo => 11, bar => 22, baz => 33); + $scalar = delete $HASH{foo}; # $scalar is 11 + $scalar = delete @HASH{qw(foo bar)}; # $scalar is 22 + @array = delete @HASH{qw(foo bar baz)} # @array is (undef,undef +,33) + +Deleting from C<$ENV{}> modifies the environment. Deleting from a hash tied to a DBM file deletes the entry from the DBM file. Delet +ing from a C<tie>d hash or array may not necessarily return anything.
