I think you are trying to say that references are not aliased but copied in "aliasing situations" to avoid some overhead...

But if you look at the following results you will notice that the ref of an alias is still identical while the ref of a copy isn't. (I used @R to keep the refcount up and hence avoid the reuse of freed addresses)

DB<55> @R= map { \$_ } $a DB<56> x @R 0 REF(0x31fae58) # -> ARRAY(0x3353230) empty array DB<57> x \$a 0 REF(0x31fae58) # same -> ARRAY(0x3353230) empty array DB<58> $b=$a DB<59> x \$b 0 REF(0x3353a58) # different -> ARRAY(0x3353230) empty array DB<60>

DB<64> p \$a == $R[0] 1 DB<65> p \$a == \$b DB<66>

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
