( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The presence of a dollar-sign is not the issue. The value of the variables at this point in the program is what's suspect:
my $a; # undef my $b = 1; my @array = ( [4, 3], [2, 1], ); print $array[$b]->[$b]; # 1 print $array[$b]->[$a]; # Use of uninitialized value in array element, + but prints 2 print $array[$a]->[$b]; # Use of uninitialized value in array element, + but prints 3
The undefined value has a numeric value of 0, so it all "works" because of Perl's DWIM nature, but through the grace of warnings we know that something is amiss if we expect that our index variables should always have a numeric value.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
