Two more questions: * @array[$out_of_bounds_index] := $var; # Fatal error ("Can't rebind non-existant container")? # Or autovivify @array[$out_of_bounds_index]? * @foo[$idx] := $var; my @bar = @foo; $var = $new_var; # @foo[$idx] and $var are now $new_var, but @bar is unchanged, right? --Ingo -- Linux, the choice of a GNU | We are Pentium of Borg.
