Several issues -- first, your slice isn't a slice. You need @sortarr[0..10]. Second, the content of each element is an array reference -- you need to slice out each part of that. p.272 is throwing you off because it's giving a slice of a row -- you're trying for a slice of a column (in a row-major AoA).

You probably want to use map to extract the subslices. E.g.

my @aoa = ( [1 .. 4], [5 .. 8], [9 .. 12], ); my @column_slice = map { [ $_->[2] ] } @aoa[1,2]; my @two_d_slice = map { [ @{$_}[1,2] ] } @aoa[1,2];

For a column slice, for each element of the slice, @aoa[1,2] (i.e. the rows), this dereferences the array reference to get the column, and returns it as a new anonymous array reference. (This keeps it an AoA; if you want a flattened list, omit the square brackets just inside the map braces.). For two-dimensions, it's similar, but you slice inside the map, too.

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