in reply to Pointers and References

Quick conceptual tip here: "forget 'pointers!'" In high-level interpreted languages such as Perl, there are only references. The interpreter manages all of these things for you, including necessary reference-counting and memory management. "Pointers" are a much lower-level concept part of the essential underlying implementation which is never directly exposed to the language user.
