in reply to Line break interpretation

Another approach which may be suitable if it's only line-breaks you're interested in may be to use a substitution.
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my $msg = 'Hello\nWorld'; print "Msg was $msg\n"; $msg =~ s/\\n/\n/g; print "Msg is $msg\n";

[LanX]: could
[LanX]: $#array gives the length
[LanX]: no sorry ...
[sierpinski]: so that would just be deferencing it...
[LanX]: the last index!
[LanX]: yes
[sierpinski]: yeah I guess $list is a reference.. yeah
[sierpinski]: why is it the last index and not the first? because the length of the array becomes the index?
[sierpinski]: thanks LanX that helps
[haukex]: the first index is always 0 - $#array gives you the last index in @array
