For one thing, you're adding two items to the array @chunk every time through the loop: $refnum and $scalar. So when you delete a given element, it's really going to be an item much earlier in the array. And delete just makes the value of that slot undef, it doesn't actually remove the item (see splice for that behavior)

Anyway, why bother adding the numbers to the array if they're sequential? Arrays already have sequential behavior. You can display an array with index numbers (assuming your array members have newlines) using:

my $num = 1; print map { $num++, " $_" } @myArray;

And you can delete a given index using:

foreach my $i (0..$#chunk) { print TO_WRITE $chunk[$i] unless $i == $number; }

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.
