Hi listanand,

Here's one way you could do it with a reference to a hash of array refs:

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my @array_names = qw (a b c d e f); my $h_arrays = { }; for my $name (@array_names) { $h_arrays->{$name} = [ $name ]; } printf "I've now got these arrays in \$h_arrays: %s\n", Dumper($h_arr +ays); __END__ Output: I've now got these arrays in $h_arrays: $VAR1 = { 'e' => [ 'e' ], 'c' => [ 'c' ], 'a' => [ 'a' ], 'b' => [ 'b' ], 'd' => [ 'd' ], 'f' => [ 'f' ] };
I'm fond of hash references, so I'd do it that way.  More simply, though, you could use a hash (instead of hash references), containing the array references:
use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my @array_names = qw (a b c d e f); my %arrays = ( ); for my $name (@array_names) { $arrays{$name} = [ $name ]; } printf "I've now got these arrays: %s\n", Dumper(\%arrays);

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
