That's the correct output. You may be misunderstanding this line:
@a = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5};
This line creates an anonymous hash by taking pairs of elements to create individual hash elements. With warnings enabled, you'd have also have been notified that the element "5" has no pair to take with it, so the hash is also improperly specified. Then the reference to this new anonymous hash becomes the sole element of the array @a.

Perhaps you wanted:

@a = (1, 2, 3, 4, 5);

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.
