If I put in a line that says

print "$diary_data[0]\n";

it prints:


If I change the print slightly, like this:

print "@{$diary_data[0]}\n";

This is what I get:


Then if I try

print "%{$diary_data[0]}\n";

it gives me:


I don't think I'm understanding this correctly. The first example looks to me like a scalar reference, pulling data out of an array; but since the array contains hashes, then how does this get pulled out? Is this "ARRAY(0x3bfda0)" line an internal reference to how Perl remembers something?

Anyway, I'm off to read perldsc for a while.

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.
