I'm certain that this isn't the best way, but it works:
foreach my $row (@AoA) { my @foo = break_up( $row ); if( $foo[0] =~ /ARRAY/ ) { push @new_rows, @foo; } else { push @new_rows, [ @foo ]; } } print Dumper(\@new_rows); sub break_up { my $row = shift; my $uses_newlines = 0; $uses_newlines++ if join( "", @$row ) =~ /\n/m; return @$row unless $uses_newlines; my @tmp; map { push @tmp, [ split /\n/ ] } @$row; my @row; for( my $i = 0; $i <= $#tmp; $i++ ) { for( my $j = 0; $j <= $#tmp; $j++ ) { $row[$i][$j] = shift @{$tmp[$j]}; } } return @row; }
giving an output of
$VAR1 = [ [ 'single', 'cell', 'values' ], [ 'are', 'really', 'easy' ], [ 'but', 'these', 'aren\'t' ], [ 'multiline', 'cells', 'suck' ], [ 'stilton', 'is', 'great' ], [ 'back', 'to', 'life' ], [ 'back', 'to', 'reality', 'with', 'more', 'cells' ] ];

Interesting problem :) What's this for, if I can ask?

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.
