Works: sub foo (@bar[4]) { say "can haz bar" }; my @x[4]; foo(@x); # outputs "can haz bar" my @y[5]; foo(@y); # "Constraint type check failed ..." Doesn't compile: sub foo (@bar[4]) { say "can haz bar: @bar[]" }; # "Variable '@bar' is not declared" Does the wrong thing: my @bar = <outer scope>; sub foo (@bar[4]) { say "can haz bar: @bar[]" }; my @x[4]; foo(@x); # outputs "outer scope" -- Met vriendelijke groet, // Kind regards, // Korajn salutojn, Juerd Waalboer <> TNX
