       undef EXPR

       undef   Undefines the value of EXPR, which must be an
               lvalue.  Use only on a scalar value, an array
               (using `@'), a hash (using `%'), a subroutine
               (using `&'), or a typeglob (using <*>).  (Saying
               `undef $hash{$key}' will probably not do what you
               expect on most predefined variables or DBM list
               values, so don't do that; see the delete manpage.)
               Always returns the undefined value.  You can omit
               the EXPR, in which case nothing is undefined, but
               you still get an undefined value that you could,
               for instance, return from a subroutine, assign to
               a variable or pass as a parameter.  Examples:

                   undef $foo;
                   undef $bar{'blurfl'};      # Compare to: delete $bar{'blurfl'};
                   undef @ary;
                   undef %hash;
                   undef &mysub;
                   undef *xyz;       # destroys $xyz, @xyz, %xyz, &xyz, etc.
                   return (wantarray ? (undef, $errmsg) : undef) if $they_blew_it;
                   select undef, undef, undef, 0.25;
                   ($a, $b, undef, $c) = &foo;       # Ignore third value returned

               Note that this is a unary operator, not a list
               operator.
