in reply to Storing variable coordinates in a matrix

Hint: you need two nested loops -- nested because of two dimensions x and y -- one loop to clear the 'screen' matrix and one loop to repopulate it and ..."One loop to bring them all and in the darkness run them" ;) (just kidding at the end there)...

Also I'd be expecting to pass five variables to a more generic subroutine -- reference to screen matrix, x, y, width and height rather than hard-code the 3x3.

Totals: 0 modules and about 6 - 12 lines of code should do this.

More hint: the syntax for assigning to an element of a matrix passed by reference would be

$ref -> [$x][$y] = 'X';

    You mean TK's mainloop? :)
