There's not enough information in your question to be able to give a serious answer. Perl doesn't have native 'table', so I would have to make a guess as what you actually mean:
- Perhaps you're using table as a synonym for an array?
- You might be talking about a database?
- Maybe you're working with an HTML table?
- or a Text::Table?
- or a PDF::Table?
- or a spreadsheet?
- ... other stuff I didn't think of...
Add a bit more information to your question, and I'm sure someone here may be able to lend a hand.
When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.
