( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I found a problem where I get a different result when printing an array after calling a function, that shouldn't be able to change the array. I got the issue down to this:
use strict; use warnings; main(); sub main { problem([[0,1,2],[3,4,5],[6,7,8]]); } sub problem { print3DArray("\@_",@_);#Output: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 reverseArray(@_); print3DArray("\@_",@_);#Output: 6 7 8 3 4 5 0 1 2 } sub reverseArray { for(my $i=0;$i<scalar(@_);$i++){ @{$_[$i]} = reverse @{$_[$i]}; } } sub print3DArray { print shift @_, ":\n"; for(my $i=0;$i<scalar(@_);$i++){ print2DArray(@{$_[$i]}); } } sub print2DArray { for(my $i=0;$i<scalar(@_);$i++){ for(my $j=0;$j<scalar(@{$_[$i]});$j++){ print $_[$i][$j]," "; } print "\n"; } print "\n"; }
@_ should stay the same, since I didn't return anything. I would appreciate any help! Thanks!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
