loop through an array to create a hash list

Hello Experts,
I have a perl script sub that currently reads a file (attached) and creates a hash list from the file.

# build cidr hash list
open(file, "cidrList.csv");
my @cidrRecs = <file>;

foreach my $rec (@cidrRecs) {
	my ($cidrMask, $cidrNum) = split(/,/,$rec);
	$cidrList{$cidrMask} = $cidrNum;

Open in new window

What i would like to do is build the hash list from a multidimensional array I create in the script but I can't figure out how to loop through each array within the array to create the hash list. here is what i have so far but it doesn't work.
my @cidrRecs = (
			[',8' ],

foreach my $row (@$cidrRecs) {
	foreach my $cell (@$row) {
		my ($cidrMask, $cidrNum) = split(/,/,$cell);
		$cidrList{$cidrMask} = $cidrNum;

Open in new window

Any help is appreciated,

Why is @cldrRecs a multi-dimensional array?  Since each sub-array has a single string value, there's no point.

If that is what you want to do, this should do it...
%cldrList = map { split /,/, $_->[0] } @cldrRecs

Is this what you wanted to achieve?

## define empty hash
my %cidrList = ();

## loop through array
foreach my $row(@cidrRecs) {
        ## split to cidrMask and cidrNum
      my ($cidrMask, $cidrNum) = split /,/, shift $row;

        ## add cidrMask as key, and cidrNum as value
      $cidrList{$cidrMask} = $cidrNum;

had to tweak it a bit but this was the closest to what i needed thx
What did not work with my solution?
Hi romlig, using map function also give same output. wilcoxon solution is also right except typo in array list name
