Isn't there a global special variable for the list index when you're
stepping through a list with a for (= foreach) statement? For
example, I frequently have code like this:
for my $element (@list)
# some processing on $element
It would be much easier if there were a global special variable (like
$. for line numbers) so I don't have to keep track of $index myself.
