in reply to Adding Hash Keys/Values

The answer to your immediate issue is that you need to use double quotes instead of single quotes if you want a variable value to interpolate into a string. Your line should therefore read $table_hash{"$n,0"} = $m;. See Quote and Quote like Operators in perlop.

You are using compound keys to emulate a multidimensional array in your code, which is very Perl 4. With the addition of array references (a couple decades ago), I would do this with something like:

#!usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my @table = ( ['X', 'Y', 'Z'], ); print Dumper \@table; my $m=0; foreach my $n (0..3) { $table[$n][0] = $m++; }; print Dumper \@table;

See perlreftut.

#11929 First ask yourself `How would I do this without a computer?' Then have the computer do it the same way.
