( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I suppose without knowing exactly how the original poster intends to use the data, it's hard to say if this would be better, but might it be even easier to use a multidimensional hash in this case?


%data = ( "1111$;Cabin" => { 'Ad1' => '01 Charles St', 'City' => 'CA', 'name' => 'Claud Odur', 'state' => 'CA', 'zCode' => '2334' }, # ... # snip # ... "8888$;Test" => { 'Ad1' => '2AAAA', 'City' => 'BB', 'name' => 'BXBXBX', 'state' => 'HH', 'zCode' => 'WWWW' } ); # Now elements of the data can be accessed like this my $val = $data{'1111','Cabin'}->{'City'}; # Or, to get a slice of rows where status is 'Main', you could do this +: my @main = @data{grep /$;Main$/, keys %data}

Edit: Added the line about accessing rows where status 'Main'

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.
