in thread Fun with two-dimensional arrays

Why not cycle through the top-level array, shifting off the bottom element in each sub-array? Something like
@array = ([1,2,3],[4,5,6],[7,8,9]); while (grep scalar @{ $_ }, @array) { for $i (@array) { print shift @{ $i }; } }
This has the merit that not only do you not need to code (or even initialise, or know) the number and length of sub-arrays, but they can also be of different lengths.
