perl code causing my string to receive ARRAY(0xc99b3c)
Posted 19 July 2012 - 08:24 AM
As you can see from the perl code snippets below, I am putting the $document string (which contains text from a text document) into an @document array. Then printing out $document before stemming it. I am them stemming the @document array and then the stemmed results get put into my $stemmed_words_anon_array string but I get: "ARRAY(0xc99b3c)" which is like a memory address. What am I doing wrong?? My results_stemmed.txt also contains the ARRAY(0xc99b3c) inside it.

ARRAY(0xc99b3c) is a reference to an (anonymous) array. To access it, you need to dereference it. For example you print it by writing print @$stemmed_words_anon_array;. For more information see the perldoc on references.
