in thread Perl bug ?

seems like the arguments for "for" are executed first and then the loop body. so:
the first element is $e && 0 which evaluates to $e. then the second argument is processed, autovivify happens.
when in the loop body, $e is an array reference already, and because the first element is an alias to $e it prints ARRAY(0xde0d48). seems logical to me.

    Yes. B::Deparse shows the same interpretation:

    Q:\>perl -MO=Deparse -E "my $e; say for $e && 0, $e->[0];" BEGIN { $^H{'feature_unicode'} = q(1); $^H{'feature_say'} = q(1); $^H{'feature_state'} = q(1); $^H{'feature_switch'} = q(1); } my $e; ; say $_ foreach ($e && 0, $$e[0]); -e syntax OK
