I'm not sure I understand the difference with your correction. Why is it supposed to be
my( $x, $y, $z ) = @{ $line[000301038][1261] };
rather than without the @{...} around the $line[...][...]?

    Without @{ .. } to derefernce the anonymous array reference, $x would be set to that array reference and $y & $z would be undef.

    $line[ 1 ][ 2 ] = [ 3,4,5 ];; my( $x, $y, $z ) = $line[ 1 ][ 2 ];; print for $x, $y, $z;; ARRAY(0x194a9f8) Use of uninitialized value in print at ... Use of uninitialized value in print at ...

    With the dereference:

    my( $x, $y, $z ) = @{ $line[ 1 ][ 2 ] };; print for $x, $y, $z;; 3 4 5

    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
