Greetings folks,

I'm sure the answer to this is going to be either 'kick-myself' simple or
practically impossible - I've been playing around and looking through
documentation to no avail...

How do I directly reference a member of a returned array - ie (in broken

sub gimme_an_array { return (1,2,3,4,5,6); }
my $third_member = gimme_an_array()[2];

Which is invalid syntax, but I cannot work out the correct syntax....

Any ideas?
