• Perl doesn t have true 2d Arrays. You can get the effect of one using references. @array = ( [1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6], [7, 8, 9], ); print

Perl doesn't have true 2d Arrays. You can get the effect of one using references.

@array = (
[1,    2,    3],
[4,    5,    6],
[7,    8,    9],
);

print \$array[0][0]; #prints 1
#is equivalent to
print \$array[0]->[0];
