in thread Add new rows and data to array.

I suppose without knowing exactly how the original poster intends to use the data, it's hard to say if this would be better, but might it be even easier to use a multidimensional hash in this case?


%data = ( "1111$;Cabin" => { 'Ad1' => '01 Charles St', 'City' => 'CA', 'name' => 'Claud Odur', 'state' => 'CA', 'zCode' => '2334' }, # ... # snip # ... "8888$;Test" => { 'Ad1' => '2AAAA', 'City' => 'BB', 'name' => 'BXBXBX', 'state' => 'HH', 'zCode' => 'WWWW' } ); # Now elements of the data can be accessed like this my $val = $data{'1111','Cabin'}->{'City'}; # Or, to get a slice of rows where status is 'Main', you could do this +: my @main = @data{grep /$;Main$/, keys %data}

Edit: Added the line about accessing rows where status 'Main'
