Perl (Scripting) - Append element to the end of an array (push)

Let's say you have an array of fruit that contains apple, banana, orange, and grape.

my @fruits = qw(apple banana orange grapes);


Push can be used to add values to the end of an array. In this example, pineapple is added to the fruits array.

push @fruits, 'pineapple';


If pineapple is in a variable, do not use the single quotes.

push @fruits, $pineapple;


The array can be printed.

print @fruits;


Printing the array will show that "pineapple" has been appeneded to the end of the array.

apple banana orange grape pinnapple
