[thelist] Perl references

Dear all

I have a newbie Perl question that is driving me up the wall. I have the

for ($i = 0; $i < @week; $i++) {
	$week[$i]{DATE} = [ @date ];
	&incrementDate(\@date, 1);

sub incrementDate {
	my($date, $type) = @_;

I want &incrementDate to reference original array @date and increment
index 3 for each pass of the loop, but I'm getting no errors but no
incrementing either. I suspect that it's my failure to grasp referencing
implementation in Perl, but I would appreciate *any* help here...

Many thanks.
