Re: I was expecting 4 elements in the array, but it only has 3

in reply to I was expecting 4 elements in the array, but it only has 3

The difference is context, scalar vs. list.

The m// operator returns the empty list on no match in list context and the list (1) in list context when there are no () in the regex.

So after evaluating all the matches in @list you are left with ((1), (), (1), (1)), which evaluates to (1,1,1).
