Why exactly are you not using an array of arrays or a hash of arrays? Strict frowns on the use of such refs for a good reason.

Hash of Arrays example:
my $HoA; $HoA->{CountArray} = [1, 2, 3, 4]; my @AlphaArray = ('a', 'b', 'c', 'd'); $HoA->{AlphaArray} = \@AlphaArray; DoStuff($HoA, 'AlphaArray'); sub DoStuff { my $HoA = shift; my $desiredArrayName = shift; die "There is no such thing as '$desiredArrayName'" unless exists ($ +HoA->{$desiredArrayName}); foreach my $value (@{$HoA->{$desiredArrayName}}) { print "$value\n"; } }

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.
