in thread Perl's feature to determine, in current point of loop, that this is the last one?

> It's so easy to avoid the limitation.

unfortunately no, but good idea nonetheless ... :)

DB<39> x @input 0 2 1 7 2 11 3 15 DB<40> use experimental 'refaliasing'; \$input[1] = \$input[-1] DB<41> x @input 0 2 1 15 2 11 3 15 DB<42> for my $v (@input) { say $v if \$v==\$input[-1] } 15 15 DB<43>

I'm not even sure that experimental feature is even needed...

IIRC one could somehow use typeglob aliasing on array elements.

    Good catch. I'll add a warning to my answer that first suggested the idea.

    I'm not even sure that experimental feature is even needed...

    Correct.

    my $inputs = sub { \@_ }->( 0, $x, $x ); for my $v (@$inputs) { say \$v; }
    SCALAR(0x559bb5b21960) SCALAR(0x559bb5b33228) SCALAR(0x559bb5b33228)

    I imagine that would Data::Alias can also achieve this.
