Example three - associative arrays

#Example three - associative array variables and print.
# the associative array %a is defined by its elements using
# the scalar $a with curled brackets {} to define both key and value.
# by Al Bento

$a = "this is example";
$b = 3;

$a{"field1"} = $a;
$a{"field2"} = $b;

print "$a{field1} number $a{field2}\n";

# here is an example of transferring the values of %a to @a

@a = %a;

# see what comes out as output of printing all elements of
# the array @a

print "$a[0] = $a[1] ; $a[2] = $a[3]\n";
