in reply to Pushing Arrays

Be careful what you mean here and whether you want an array :

my @setargs = ( $set1, $set2 );

or a reference to an array:

my $setargs_ref = [ $set1, $set2 ];

You can push onto either, as long as you refer to it properly

foreach my $set (whatever loop) { push @setargs, $set; push @{ $setargs_ref }, $set; # explicit dereference }

    Of course, for situations like that, you don't actually need a loop. You can just
    push @setargs, whatever loop
    where whatever loop isn't a loop, but is the list (or array) being iterated over in the original code.

    Thanks I was meaning a reference to an array, so that code helps a lot thanks,
