The extraneous commas are no problem. That is one of the many improvements of Perl versus C. These extra commas allow easier additions to the hash with any of Emacs, Vi, Notepad, Wordpad, Ultra-edit, or even ed.

Another possible style, which I prefer, consists in writing the comma at the beginning of the next line, not the end of the previous one. Example:

my %switch_hash =
   chrdex   => 
    DEX   => 
        '01-AUG-02'  => 1
      , '03-AUG-02'  => 3
 , uslcgb5e2sm => 
    Greensboro  => 
        '4-AUG-02'   => 1
      , '6-AUG-02'   => 2
 , uslecat25e1       => 
    'Atlanta II' =>  # quotation marks are required here
        '1-AUG-02'   => 1
      , '2-AUG-02'   => 3
      , '3-AUG-02'   => 1
      , '4-AUG-02'   => .25

This style also allows easier editing of the hash.

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.
