( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
What I don't understand is why I get different results in this code:
use strict; use warnings; problem([1,2,3]); sub problem { print2DArray(@_); #Output: 1 2 3 reverseArray1(@_); print2DArray(@_); #Output: 1 2 3 reverseArray2(@_); print2DArray(@_); #Output: 3 2 1 } sub reverseArray1 { my @arr = @_; for my $i (0 .. $#arr) { $arr[$i] = [reverse @{$arr[$i]}]; } } sub reverseArray2 { my @arr = @_; for my $i (0 .. $#arr) { @{$arr[$i]} = reverse @{$arr[$i]}; } } sub print2DArray { for my $i (0 .. $#_) { # How does that work for the nested for lo +op? for(my $j=0;$j<scalar(@{$_[$i]});$j++){ # $#_[$i] doesn't wor +k print $_[$i][$j]," "; } print "\n"; } }
Whats the difference between
$arr[$i] = [reverse @{$arr[$i]}];
and
@{$arr[$i]} = reverse @{$arr[$i]};
?

I still am quite new to perl, and I appreciate all the comments!

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
