A straight forward way to do an intersection of two arrays (provided their elements are scalar values) is to create a hash using one array, where the keys correspond to the elements of that array. Then run over the other array, and if a key in the original hash corresponds with an element (i.e., it exists) then you've found an element in common.

The following solutions ensures all unique items in the intersection, even if both arrays contain duplicate items:
my @array1 = qw/a a b b c c d d/; my @array2 = qw/ c c d d e e f f g g/; my @array3 = (); my %filter = (); foreach (@array1) { $filter{$_} = 1; } foreach (@array2) { if (exists($filter{$_}) && 2 == ++$filter{$_}) { push(@array3,$_); } } print join(' ',@array3);
If your arrays are do not contain scalar values, i.e., array/hash/sub refs, etc; then you can write a function to pass $_ through to serialize it first.

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.
