in reply to Data::Dumper Dilema

Since it appears that Data::Dumper is performing as advertised, you'll need to adjust your expectations. *grin*

What isn't clear from your question is which bits are interesting to you? Your first example gives you the entire data structure, obviously a bit long. Since your data structure is an array of arrays, your second example pulls out an entire array one level down. And finally, your third example is pulling an element from that second level down. Which is exactly what that syntax does.

Now, I can only assume that what you wanted to do was see one element from a bunch of the arrays in the parent array. To do that, you'll want a loop structure:
for my $x ( 0 .. @$sb+0 ) { print Data::Dumper->Dump( $sb->[$x][#element] ); }
Where #element is the element number you are interested in.
