The above will return a reference to the concatenated
array @a, @b ... not what you want.

The above is correct. You are simply missing the last step:
de-rereference the arrays:
my ($a,$b) = myfunction();
my @a = @$a; # deref $a
my @b = @$b; # deref $b
Don't get confused by @a and $a - they are two completely
different and unrelated variables. Could have called them
@arraya and $a, or whataver.
