( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hello, I'm having trouble locating the cuase of an endless loop while I trasvers a complex data structure. The endless loop happens in the second foreach statment but after looking over the camel I have not found any hints as to what is wrong. The wisdom of my fellow monks is much needed.
use strict; my $name = 'test'; my %test; push @{$test{"$name"}}, { name => 'me',age => 'here' }; push @{$test{"$name"}}, { name => 'meAgain',age => 'Nowhere' }; push @{$test{"two"}}, { name => 'you',age => 'there' }; push @{$test{"two"}}, { name => 'AndYou',age => 'AndThere' }; my ($s,$u,$n); foreach $s (keys %test) { foreach $u ( @{$test{$s}} ) { foreach $n (keys %{$test{$s}[$u]}) { print "$s $u $n: $test{$s}[$u]{$n} - \n"; } } }

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
