3.1 What Is a List or Array?

A list is ordered scalar data. An array is a variable that holds a list. Each element of the array is a separate scalar variable with an independent scalar value. These values are ordered; that is, they have a particular sequence from the lowest to the highest element.

Arrays can have any number of elements. The smallest array has no elements, while the largest array can fill all of available memory. Once again, this is in keeping with Perl's philosophy of "no unnecessary limits."
