in reply to How to pass arrays into this program?

I have 3 arrays, namely @array_names, @array_numbers1 and @array_numbers2, how do I pass their values into the array @data?

Where do you have these 3 arrays? Ie. In another script? In shell variables?

    Yeah, sorry!
    I meant, I want to read a tab-separated file and store the data that are now hard-coded into arrays... So, open the tab-separated file, create the 3 arrays and then pass them into @data, instead of writing their values by hand, like I do now...

      ... my @array_names = readfile( "somename" ); my @array_numbers1 = readfile( "someothername" ); my @array_numbers2 = readfile( "anothername" ); my @data = ( \@array_names, \@array_numbers1, \@array_numbers2 ); ...

        Aha, I see!
        Thank you very much!

      It sounds like Text::CSV will do what you want.

      Please note that the majority of the code you posted has nothing to do with your question: this just leads to confusion (and perhaps frustration) when attempting to isolate the handful of relevant lines from the two screenfuls of code you posted. A better question will get better answers: the guidelines in "How do I post a question effectively?" can help you achieve this.
