In Perl, a 2-D array is an array of references to 1-D arrays.
Look at Data Type: Array in the Tutorials section of Perl Monks.
A Perl 2-D array can have a different number of "columns" on each "row".
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my @ar1 = (["one", "two"], ["three", "four", "five"]); my $count = scalar @{ $ar1[1] }; print "count: Elements in 2nd Row = $count\n"; print "number of dimensions =", scalar @ar1, "\n"; my $total_elements; foreach my $row_ref (@ar1) { $total_elements += @$row_ref; } print "total elements in array:ar1=$total_elements\n"; __END__ count: Elements in 2nd Row = 3 number of dimensions =2 total elements in array:ar1=5

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 janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
