Proposed patch to perlvar.pod
Message ID:

There was recent discussion on regarding where to
find documentation for $# (see ). The poster was actually
looking for information regarding the $#ary to get the last index of
@ary. He expected the documentation to be in perlvar.pod when it
actually is in perldata.pod.

Given that the builtin variable $# was removed with 5.10.0, there no
longer is an entry in perlvar.pod for $#. The attached patch inserts
an entry into perlvar.pod for $# which points out that $# no longer
exists and the user should consult perldata.pod for the $#ary usage.

The patch file was generated on a Windows system from blead. I am
afraid permissions may have been messed up.

Thank you for your attention.
