perl - simple array syntax problem


I'm trying to declare all the lowercase letters in the alphabet in an array, so then I can call on 'a' as '1' and 'c' as '3', etc...

This doesn't seem to work...

@lwralphabet=qw/JUNK ['a'..'z']/;
print $lwralphabet[3];

Try using:
@lwralphabet=('a'..'z');
print $lwralphabet[3];

Also remember that the first item in an array is at "0" so a=0.

that works, thanks..

I was trying to get it to get the values + 1 by using a JUNK value.. however, this will suffice

If you really want "a" to be one then you can use:
@lwralphabet=('Z','a'..'z');

This will make Z=0 and a=1
