I wished I could up-vote you multiple times. :)

Interesting ... here a workaround

DB<99> my $a =[]; sub bar () { $a } DB<100> sub tst { print bar,bar} DB<101> tst ARRAY(0x3365bc0)ARRAY(0x3365bc0)

But sorry when I insist, the following case should be an error, because the aliased literal array will be destroyed afterwards, which sense does it make to alter it?

map { $_++ } []

I wouldn't mind map { $_+1 } [] tho.

> But something like map { $_++ } \undef not failing doesn't entirely make sense to me yet

agreed, I think it's simply not covered.

... is pretty clear to me. I also have an answer for you ;-p

The first post -increment returns the original value before incrementing.

The second pre -increment returns the result, which is the numification of the reference +1

DB<105> p []+1 53924433

Title:
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.
