the my @A assignment uses the values of $x and $y at that time, and then you get an AoA of static numbers .. changing $x and $y after the fact will have no effect. I believe what you're looking for is a function, so you can pass in $x and $y and get back the array calculated for those two values.
sub makeBoxArray { my ($x, $y) = @_; return ( [ ([$x, $y ]), ([$x+1, $y ]), ([$x+2, $y ]), ([$x+3, $y ]) ], [ ([$x, $y+1]), ([$x+1, $y+1]), ([$x+2, $y+1]), ([$x+3, $y+1]) ], [ ([$x, $y+2]), ([$x+1, $y+2]), ([$x+2, $y+2]), ([$x+3, $y+2]) ], [ ([$x, $y+3]), ([$x+1, $y+3]), ([$x+2, $y+3]), ([$x+3, $y+3]) ], ); } my @A = makeBoxArray( 5, 10 ); # use @A for something @A = makeBoxArray( 7, 2 ); # use @A for something
To take it a step further, the array can be generated using map to eliminate the repetitive text, and also add optional params for the box size:
sub makeBoxArray { my $left = shift; my $top = shift; my $width = shift || 4; my $height = shift || 4; return map { my $y = $_; [ map { [$left+$_, $top+$y] } 0 .. $width-1 ] } 0 .. $height-1 ; }

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
