It matters if cc is an associative array. Given that you've
(accidentally) used slice assignment with cc, it cannot be an
associative array.

These two aren't the same:

  cc[42]="foo bar"
  cc[42]=(foo bar)

The second is a slice assignment.

You can filter beforehand like this:


This assumes that $filter doesn't have metacharacters. If it does and
you want to treat them as such, use $~filter.
