If you want to understand what's going on, you can try adding some print statements. This should make it pretty clear what's happening.
use strict; my @list = qw(1 2 3 4 5); my $each = ""; my $i = 0; my @newlist = (); foreach $each (@list) { print "Each was: $each\n"; #new $each *= 2; print "Each is: $each\n"; #new $newlist[$i] = $each; print "New list is: $newlist[$i]\n"; #new print "Old list is $list[$i]\n\n"; #new ++$i; } for ($i= 0; $i<5; ++$i) { print ($newlist[$i] - $list[$i], "\n"); }
And maybe in the future it would be a good idea for the reason for what happens to be included in the 'black box of enlightenment' so that people won't just be puzzled, but will learn, too? (Or maybe not; it's good debugging practice to figure out where the unexpected happens. Why have the box at all? There isn't much point to just show the output, since people can just run the program to see the output.)

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
