You could be a bit cleaner still and not declare the %UID_PATH hash as many times. Also, as stated above, the reason you were getting one line is that your return value was within the while loop, meaning the only the last value would be returned. Moving it outside and cleaning up a little as below:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; my %ARR1 = uid(); foreach my $TAB (keys %ARR1) { print "User --> $TAB, Value --> $ARR1{$TAB}\n"; } sub uid { my %UID_PATH; open (FH1, "</etc/passwd") || die "Can't Open : $!"; while (<FH1>) { my @UID = split (/:/, $_); if ($UID[2] > 500) { my $USER = "$UID[0]"; $UID_PATH{$USER} = "$UID[5]"; } } return %UID_PATH; }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
