  | The period (".") after "name" should not be there.

Yet, the rules of grammar say it must be, as that is the end of the
sentence.   This is the perennial issue with mixing code samples into
English (or other) text - the rules for the two are different.

The usual solution is to rewrite the sentence so that the code/example is
not at the end, in this case perhaps something like:

        The command:
                declare -A name
        is used to create an associative array.
