So, $sortarr[0..10] is just plain wrong. (Does it compile? Confused.) It should be @sortarr[0..10] because a slice is plural (@) not singular ($).

I can see what you are trying to do. You want the third column of the first ten lines in an array.

You need to invert the Array-of-Arrays.

Rather than an array of the split lines, you need an array of each column.

You can do this with map, rather than a push split as you parse the file.

Once you have it inverted you would say @sortarr[3]->[0..10] to get what you want.

Update: Oh! I see why $sortarr[0..10] is compiling. It evaluates the array 0..10 in a scalar context, which gives you its length. It then uses this length as the index to a single element of @sortarr. use warnings may have helped. -Andrew.

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.

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