[Chicago-talk] Using "@" to reference element in array

I just got a script at work where the writer used:

my @array = qw[adf af a adf asdfd];
print @array[2];

And it works!!

I thought that notation didn't go into effect until Perl6.

I've always done $array[2], and never tried the style above.  Is there any
reason not to adopt the style above in future Perl5 programming?
