Definition: A perl list is an ordered group of scalars. They are contained in a single row, or list, and can be accessed as a whole, or individually via their numeric values as scalars. The list is assigned an array name, preceded by the @ character. The array name may only contain letters, numbers, or the underscore character.
@myList = (1, 2, 3); @list_of_names = ('Larry', 'Curly', 'Moe');
