Note that your assignment is using array slices @arr[0] and @arr[1]. Although it works, you should use $arr[0] and $arr[1] instead because they are not the same thing.

You could use the following method to initialize the 2-d array (use qw // and no commas, I hate to type commas :-)
@arr = ( [ qw/ 1 2 3 / ], [ qw/ 4 5 6 / ] );

Note that [ ... ] builds a reference to an array, it has 0 dimension. While ( ... ) builds an array, which has 1 dimension. When you assign an array to a zero dimension element @arr[0] or $arr[0], it only picks the first element from your array.

And also you could use Data::Dumper to inspect your array afterwards.
use Data::Dumper; @arr = ( [ qw/ 1 2 3 / ], [ qw/ 4 5 6 / ] ); print Dumper(\@arr); # and in your case @arr[0] = qw/ 1 2 3 /; @arr[1] = qw/ 4 5 6 /; print Dumper(\@arr);

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
