I assume by skipping the first element, you mean $array[0], not $array[1]. I also not that you should read Writeup Formatting Tips to keep your array indices from being linkified.

There is no generic loop structure that just skips the first element. You can however use loop control like next to skip undesirable elements:

my $skip = 0; for my $i (0 .. $#array) { next if $i == $skip; #process }

You can also you array slices in order to feed restricted sections of your array to a foreach loop:

for (@array[1 .. $#array]) { #process }

or if you have no need for the loop itself, you can use the slice with a direct assignment:

my @new_array = @array[1 .. $#array]; or if you meant skipping $array[1]

my @new_array = @array[0, 2 .. $#array];

You can do more advanced list preprocessing with map and grep. After all, TIMTOWTDI.

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.
