in thread Shouldn't LITERAL references be readonly? (updated)

> Perl doesn't have literal arrays ... a reference to an anonymous array,



A token in a programming language, such as a number or string, that gives you an actual value instead of merely representing possible values as a variable does.


Used to describe a referent that is not directly accessible through a named variable. Such a referent must be indirectly accessible through at least one hard reference. When the last hard reference goes away, the anonymous referent is destroyed without pity
