How to pass n,1 number of variables to Perl where n is not known?

Hi,
I would like to pass multiple variables to perl. I used $ARGV[0] to capture the first input. However my function call will be like that:

perl mycode.pl 111111 222222 333333 444444 555555 'I am appending this to my field'

Now I don't know how many numbers I will have in the input. So this is unknown. And I will loop through for each of these numbers to append the string to a variable.

What I do is something like this which obviously does not work as expected:

foreach (@ARGV) {

$ssc->{'solution'} .= $ARGV[0];

}

Open in new window


I want to loop through the n number of times where n is the count of these numbers,let's say in this example 5 times, and append the last one to $ssc->{'solution'}

How can I do it?

Thanks,

To double-check, you want the numbers appended to the solution, correct?

What do you want done with the last argument (the string)?
# get "rid" of trailing string
my $str = pop @ARGV;

# loop over numbers
foreach my $arg (@ARGV) {
    $ssc->{solution} .= $arg;
}

Open in new window

Actually the string is to be appended to the solution. But I figured it out how to do it using your solution.

$ssc->{solution} = "@ARGV";
