I think that if you read on, on the description of the auto-increment operators, or check perlop, you'll notice the following warning:

Note that just as in C, Perl doesn't define when the variable is incremented or decremented. 
You just know it will be done sometime before or after the value is returned. 
This also means that modifying a variable twice in the same statement will lead to undefined behaviour. 
Avoid statements like:
1. $i = $i ++; 2. print ++ $i + $i ++;
Perl will not guarantee what the result of the above statements is.

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
