( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

let's say you have an array that looks like this

my @vals = ( 'cat', 'dog', 'mouse' );

Let's push onto this array:

push( @vals, 'tiger' ); print( join(',',@vals ) );
outputs cat,dog,mouse,tiger.

Let's pop from this array:

print( pop( @vals ) );
outputs tiger.

Let's shift from this array:

print( shift( @vals ) );
outputs cat.

Note that both shift and pop remove the value from the array that you obtained:

print( join(',',@vals ) );
prints dog,mouse.

Finally delete isn't an array function, it's used for deleting a hash element... update: whoops Limbic~Region has pointed out I was wrong about the delete function.. read his comments below.
