Well, if you want a "WTF", I found this gem on cpan a while ago:

#merges the elements of two or more arrays together so that the values + of one # are appended to the end of the previous one sub array_merge{ my(@array1, @array2) = @_; foreach my $element (@array2){ @array1 = (@array1, $element); }#foreach return @array1; }#array_merge

    I have to admit - he couldn't do it much faster than that and still have a subroutine...

    (Anyone else notice that @array2 will always be empty since @array1 will get all of @_? Thus, the foreach will always be skipped!)

      Yes :) But it'd works this way:
      sub array_merge(\@\@){ my($array1, $array2) = @_; foreach my $element (@$array2){ @$array1 = (@$array1, $element); }#foreach return @$array1; }#array_merge my @t=array_merge(@liste1, @liste2);
        my @t = (@liste1, @liste2);
        works too. No need to reinvent what the core language already provides in a simple way.
