But shouldn't the foreach() have selected the first array element? If I have a simple array (anna, beth, christie, denise) and pass this @array to foreach, it returns the values. Well, @$fildref3 is a simple array, so when I pass it to foreach(), I expect it to return the members of this array, which is either an array of scalar pairs or the refs to these (in code example 2). I fail to understand why this doesn't work (simulated dump output):
\@arr = [ 1, 2, 3, [ anna, beth, christie, denise ], ] foreach my girl (@$arr[3]) { print "$girl\n"; }

This is what I try to do. Dump doesn't show:

\@arr = [ 1, 2, 3, \[ anna, beth, christie, denise ], ]

(Note the ref marker in front of the girl array.)

If I understand correctly, the @{} is needed to deref the array ref. But Dump shows me it's an ordinary array, like in my first simple array example in this post.

Thanks for helping out...

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:

  • 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).
