It only happens that I quite regularly attend Perl conferences and workshops where the acclaimed Perl elite meets and...

These are the defaults anyway for those attributes (see man sshd_config)

This sounds strange, as to my knowledge /var on a Unix-like system should either be owned by root or bin.
Also why were...

Sorry, I was completely wrong.
I shouldn't have replied at all.
Actually, DECODE seems to be similar to a ternary operator in many programming languages (like ? : ).

Certainly $array[$index] is the correct way of referring to a single element of the array.
As a reminder, think of what you want to obtain; a single value, thus use the sigil $.

Many awk implementations also allow passing shell variables, either via the -v option, or as trailing argument (after the file to parse).

I never questioned that.
As the other poster already said, it's time to role the restore from the backup.
