in thread making presence/absence table from a hash of arrays

The OP is a biologist, not a SW person.

The OP doesn't say that so I assume that you know them personally?

- something simple -

The OP says they have "an array with 5 elements" but you chose to store that in a string and then split it.    How is that simpler?

    In the level of thread that I directly replied to, the Original Poster says: "I am a PhD genome biologist still getting to grips with the finer details of Perl".

    The OP says they have "an array with 5 elements" but you chose to store that in a string and then split it.
    Well, I certainly did focus on the OP's description of the output:
    one two three four five row_1 = 1 1 0 0 1 row_2 = 0 1 0 1 0 row_3 = 1 0 1 1 1 etc...
    It looked to me like there would be line with the column names - I certainly was thinking about a normal CSV type header. If not so what? We are focusing on the wrong detail.

    I think we are getting bogged down into small details... You posted an excellent solution as did I. Let's leave it at that.
