++ for letting us know the resolution.

On the comma thing. I have a habit of starting out with a lines like

$i++ if $some_condition; #or push @a, 'fred' while @a < 10;

And then realising that I need to do something else in the if or while and so instead of restructuring the line to the

if(..) { ....; ....; } or

while( ... ) { ...; ....; }

I do

$j-- , $i++ if $some_condition; #or print scalar @a , push @a, 'fred' while @a < 10;

This is usually a temporary step while I try something out or when debugging, but I've been bitten enough times by the "comma thing" to recognise the symtoms.
