in reply to Difference between my ($foo) & my $foo
my (undef, $a, undef, $b, @rest, $c) = (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8);
my $count = @rest; # 4 - because there are four items (scalar contex
my ($first) = @rest; # 5 - because first item is 5 (list context)
my $last = (11, 22, 33, 999); # 999 - because assigning LIST to scalar
+ only picks last item
