Problem this snippet solves:

Working with 2-d arrays in perl can be a bit tricky so I wrote this bit of code to illustrate how to extract them from a response as well as packaging them for a request. This example uses the LocalLB VirtualServer's iRule methods to query the iRules associated with a virtual server as well as allowing you to add/remove iRules from a specified virtual server.
