in reply to how to avoid using index of array

Use a hash?

use strict; use warnings; my @guys=qw(Tom Dick Harry); my @gals=qw(Jane Mary Pamela); # The real work ... my %marriages; @marriages{@guys}=@gals; for my $guy (keys %marriages) { print "$guy - $marriages{$guy}\n"; }
Dick - Mary Harry - Pamela Tom - Jane
