Buckaroo Buddha has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question: (arrays)

Hi there,
I'm trying to figure out how to make sure each array claims its own memoryspace.

How do I do that?

while <> { @record = split(',',$_); $key = shift(@record); $list{$key} = \@record; }

    You need to declare the variable lexically with my:
    while (<>) { my @record = split /,/; my $key = shift @record; $list{$key} = \@record; }
    You can test this by printing out the array references; they should all have different addresses:
    print join "\n", values(%list), '';

    The other way to do it is to take a copy of the array each time by using the anonymous array constructor.

    while (<>) { my @record = split /,/; my $key = shift @record; $list{$key} = [@record]; }
