There are three factors to consider: the sigil, the identifier, and possible indexing syntax for arrays or hashes. You can see all three in a single-element access to an array: SIGIL IDENTIFIER INDEX $ name [3] $name[3] The sigil is $, the identifier is name, and the indexing is [3]. You know that the variable is name, and you know that it’s an array variable because that’s the only type that uses [ ] for indexing.
