Don't do that (parallel arrays). Either use an array of arrays (AoA):

my @IPMap = ( [ "host_1", "" ], [ "host_2", "" ], [ "host_3", "" ], );

or better, a hash:

my %IPMap = ( host_1 => "", host_2 => "", host_3 => "", );

YAML allows both structures to be generated directly from the configuration file. For example:

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dump::Streamer; use YAML (); my $yamlStr = <<END_YAML; --- host_1: "" host_2: "" host_3: "" --- - - host_1 - "" - - host_2 - "" - - host_3 - "" END_YAML my ($IPMapH, $IPMapAoA) = YAML::Load ($yamlStr); Dump $IPMapH; Dump $IPMapAoA;


$HASH1 = { host_1 => '', host_2 => '', host_3 => '' }; $ARRAY1 = [ [ 'host_1', '' ], [ 'host_2', '' ], [ 'host_3', '' ] ];

True laziness is hard work
