You're right. I could have been more explicit in the original code, but I just wanted to give the gist, and so left large (and potentially important) hunks out. Of course I'd use my @array when I got it from "Thing" (which I'll assume is a line from a file which we're splitting to get an array) , à la :

my @list_of_arrays; while (<FILE>) { my @array = split "\t", $_; push @list_of_arrays, \@array; }

Because that gives you a (reference to a) fresh @array each time through the loop, instead of adding yet another reference to the same global array.

As tilly has pointed out, only giving *parts* of the answer may not be helpful ... So, as they said in that long-ago decade, let's be careful out there =)

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
