This week, we're updating our course layouts and descriptions. Presentation and materials always gently change over time, but just occasionally there's a need to make a step change to clear out some of the old and roll in the new. That's now happening - but over a long and complex site it's not instant and you'll see sections of the site changing up to and including 19th September.

Erasing an array..

Posted by kitwalker2886 (kitwalker2886), 9 June 2007
I found using the push command to fill up an array very convenient because i don ve to keep track of the array index..
        but when i use the push command within a loop, the array will ve to be empty each time the loop starts or else i ll be carrying over the elements filled in the last iteration of the loop right..
         As a stop gap srrangement i just used a for loop to pop out all the elements from the aray at the end of the loop.. But is there any other more elegant method to completely erase the contents of a specified array..??

$#listname = -1;

will clear the contents of a list called @listname

undef @listname;

will erase a list and all its contents.

The first option leaves you with an empty list, and the second does not.
