For another way to do it:

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dump qw(dump); my @arr; push @arr, [1,2,3]; push @arr, [4,5,6]; print dump (@arr); prints: ([1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6])

It is strongly recommended that you put "use strict; use warnings;" at the start of every bit of code you write. In this case the compiler would have told you "Scalar value @arr1 better written as $arr1" which is a clue that something is wrong, but might not tell you exactly what in this case.

Note also the use of print dump (@arr) to dump the contents of the array. Try this code fragment using "()" in place of the "[]" and see what happens to the contents of the array.

Perl is Huffman encoded by design.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 editor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
