in thread Get the length of a list.

Lists are not arrays!

see FAQ#What is the difference between a list and an array?

for instance the easiest way to know how many values a function or a grep returned is using a goatse:

DB<101> sub tst {a..z} DB<102> $length =()= tst() => 26 DB<107> grep { $_ % 2 } 1..10 => (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) DB<108> $n =()= grep { $_ % 2 } 1..10 => 5
