List::Group - Group a list of data structures to your specifications.


  use List::Group qw[group];
  my @list  = qw[cat dog cow rat];
  my @group = group @list, cols => 2;

  foreach my $row ( @group ) {
    print "@{$row}\n";


A simple module that currently allows you to group a list by columns or rows.


group listref, args
  my @table = group \@list, cols => 2;

This function returns a list-of-lists containing the elements of listref passed as the first argument. The remaining arguments detail how to group the elements. Available groupings are cols, and rows. Each of these groupings accept a single digit as a value, the number of cols or rows to create.

The following is what @table would look like from the previous example.

  my @list  = qw[cat dog mouse rat];
  my @table = group \@list, cols => 2;

  print Dumper \@table;

  $VAR1 = [
    [ 'cat', 'dog' ],
    [ 'mouse', 'rat' ]
