in thread Sorting an array of hashes

Running the previous version of code:
perl arraydelete.pl Use of uninitialized value within @x in print at arraydelete.pl line 6 +. 1245
Modified as follows using "exists":
#! perl use warnings; use strict; my @x = (1,2,3,4,5); delete $x[2]; for (0..4) { print $x[$_] if exists ($x[$_]) }
Run it to produce:
perl arraydelete.pl 1245

    Update: I didn't read your post carefully enough

    You get the result you want, but the semantic is not what you indicate by using exists so I'd rather use defined in that case.

    #! perl use warnings; use strict; my @x = (1,2,3,4,5); delete $x[2]; for (0..4) { print $x[$_] }
    Run it to produce:
    Use of uninitialized value in print at checkifexists.pl line 6. 1245
    So, the element exists, but it's value is undefined.
