Perl grep from array


I have the following array @fimAttributes but have changed it to have two sections, one for blue and one for yellow in this example.

I was using a grep to preform a function based on if the attribute was in the array, but now that I have changed it to two sections in the array I'm not sure how to do the grep on the section that I want.

From the example below, how do I change the grep to grep the blue or yellow section of the array, something simple I'm sure, just not sure what I need to change the grep line to?

Thanks,

my @fimAttributes=(q{blue}=>[qw{
                            id
                            alias
                            c
                            cn
                            department
                            displayname
                            facsimiletelephonenumber
                            givenname
                            manager
                            jobtitle
                            userprincipalname}],
                    q{yello}=>[qw{  
                            givenname
                            jobtitle
                            l
                            mail
                            mailalias
                            mailalternateaddress
                            mobile
                            o
                            ou
                            userprincipalname}]
                );




my (@Attributes)=('cn','mail','manager','securitystatus','alias','itbuilding');

    my @Attributes1;
    foreach my $i (0..$#Attributes) {
      unless (grep( /^$Attributes[$i]$/i, @fimAttributes) ) {       
        push(@Attributes1,$Attributes[$i]);
      }
    }
    @Attributes=@Attributes1;

foreach my $att (@Attributes) {
  print "$att\n";
}

Change fimAttributes to be a hash, and then cast it where used on line 33:

my %fimAttributes=(q{blue}=>[qw{
                            id
                            alias
                            c
                            cn
                            department
                            displayname
                            facsimiletelephonenumber
                            givenname
                            manager
                            jobtitle
                            userprincipalname}],
                    q{yello}=>[qw{  
                            givenname
                            jobtitle
                            l
                            mail
                            mailalias
                            mailalternateaddress
                            mobile
                            o
                            ou
                            userprincipalname}]
                );




my (@Attributes)=('cn','mail','manager','securitystatus','alias','itbuilding');

    my @Attributes1;
    foreach my $i (0..$#Attributes) {
      unless (grep( /^$Attributes[$i]$/i, @{$fimAttributes{'blue'}}) ) {       
        push(@Attributes1,$Attributes[$i]);
      }
    }
    @Attributes=@Attributes1;

foreach my $att (@Attributes) {
  print "$att\n";
}

That's pretty much what I tried but I see I had a mistake.

Thanks,
