this might be what you are looking for...


@a = (1,2,3);
@b = (4,5);

print @a,"\n"; ## print the array

## Store the reference to those arrays in another array or the master array!!
@all = (\@a, \@b);

## Print the array whose reference is stored in the 0th element of the master array.
print @{$all[0]},"\n";
