Or arrogantly unambitious adaptations of comic book characters, with a little plot sprayed around the catering truck.

[shmem]: no. A reference is something like a pointer in C
[james28909]: i mean i get what you are saying though. but it is easily confused (especially by someone like me :P )
[shmem]: in the loop example I gave you, $_ is not a reference. It is just the current element of @array "in disguise".
[shmem]: i.e accessed as $array[$i] where $i would be the loop index in a C-style "for" loop: for($i=0;$i<=$# array;$i++){ ... }</c>
[james28909]: i gotcha
[Discipulus]: reference is a road sign; alias like Constantinple and Istnbul
Discipulus well istanbul was a road sign but this is another story: eis ten polin
[shmem]: Discipulus++; # and I give you an "a"
[james28909]: and you are right, i already tried to go C but ended up coming back, mainly because data types confuse me, well that and things like long long double and float point things all scare me
[james28909]: lol
