in reply to my $x or my ($x)

In addition to the above, the list context can be useful in a case like this:

my ($foo, $bar, $baz) = return_an_array(); print "Foo: $foo, BAR: $bar, BAZ: $baz"; sub return_an_array() { my @the_array = ("1","apple","a"); return @the_array; }
Will print
Foo: 1, BAR: apple, BAZ: a

Update: added $baz in the correct place. Thanks blogical.

    Or it would, if you asked for $baz. As it is it simply discards the third return item, 'a'.
