Tools perl: Assigning array values..

I have to add a variable value to an array, something like this:

......
@my_array_name = $value_of_this_variable;

This doesnt seem to work, any ideas why?

Thanks!

'unshift' adds to the beginning of an array, 'push' adds to the end of an array.

If you want to assign, its like this:

@array = ($value_of_this_variable,$value_of_this_variable_also);
