I'm not sure I understand this error in the context of my code

    map {
        my $mySTR = "sample";
        $myArr[$_][0] = $mySTR;                             
    } 0..$#myArr

Argument "sample" isn't numeric in array slice

error is shown for line
my $mySTR = "sample";

What is in @myArr and what are you trying to do?
Did you mean something like
do {
        my $mySTR = "sample";
        $myArr[$_][0] = $mySTR;                            
    } for 0..$#myArr
