D'oh. Thanks for pointing out my obvious typo. That is what I get for posting late at night without testing my code.

What I consider the most important point here is not that lists and arrays differ. Rather it is that there are a lot of ways in which scalar and array context can have unexpected behaviour, and there are a lot of hidden mines awaiting the person who does not think about which is which.

Being aware of the context and making a point of consistently exploring it will teach you a lot of nuances of code.

BTW I am no longer bitten by the difference between lists and arrays. There was a period when I realized that Perl really is list-oriented and I tried to make my code be list-oriented and I got bitten during the transitition...

Title:
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.
