Steffen Schwigon skribis 2007-05-21 1:28 (+0200): > 1. Should assigning an arrayref to an array dereference?
No, an array in list context only flattens when it has the @ sigil, or when it is explicitly flattened with the  postcircumfix operator, or the | prefix operator. > Which Synopses describes this? S03 > 2. Shouldn't .perl generally use parens for outputting arrays (at > least on the most outer level)? No, because parens are just for grouping and controlling precedence. They are not constructors. Note that in this assignment, my @foo = @bar; @bar is in list context. The syntax is ARRAY = LIST; and not ARRAY = ARRAY. Assigning an array to an array seems kind of useless to me. Binding probably makes a bit more sense: my @foo := @bar; That's ARRAY := ARRAY there, so the following should dwym: my @foo := [ 1, 2, 3 ]; However, this does not work with pugs, so I don't know if I am wrong, or pugs is wrong. -- korajn salutojn, juerd waalboer: perl hacker <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> <http://juerd.nl/sig> convolution: ict solutions and consultancy <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>
