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

I'ld do it like this:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; sub printstruct { my $struct=shift; my $main=shift||0; my $ret=$main?"\n":" "; my $item; if (ref $struct eq "ARRAY") { for $item (sort @$struct) { printstruct($item); } } elsif (ref $struct eq "HASH") { for $item (sort keys %$struct) { print $item," " if $main; printstruct($struct->{$item}); print $ret; } } else { print $struct,$ret; } } my $struct={ mykey1 => { 'firstkey' => 'firstvalue', 'secondkey' => 'secondval' + }, mykey2 => { 'ninza' => 'turtle', 'Hurricane' => 'Dennis' }, mykey3 => [ [ 'one', 'two', 'three' ] ], mykey4 => [ [ 4, 5, 'three' ], [ 6, 7, 'four' ], [ 8, 9, 'five' ] +], }; printstruct($struct,1);
Note that I was unsure which the correct data struct was, so I made some changes in it as you can see. This would work for any struct with the three basic data types.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
