in thread Dereference an array reference

That's all well and good to say -- but it might help to give a little context (Oh my, what pun!) to ponder:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my $scalar; my @list; sub foo { return (42, 24, 10); } sub bar { my @array = (42, 24, 10); return @array; } $scalar = foo(); # same as: $scalar = (42,24,10); @list = foo(); # same as: @list = (42,24,10); print "$scalar:@list\n"; # prints: 10:42 24 10 $scalar = bar(); # same as: $scalar = @array; @list = bar(); # same as: @list = @array; print "$scalar:@list\n"; # prints: 3:42 24 10 __END__
