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

Need to maintain both key and value in code to find which key has a largest value among all the key pairs in hash. Following is a one more way to achieve your requirement.

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; # initializing hash %hash= ( '1' => '8', '2' => '6', '3' => '3', '4' => '7'); # print the structure print Dumper \%hash; # maintaining key and value of highest value in hash # 0th index => Key # 1st index => Value my @larger =(0,0); while (my ($key, $value) = each %hash) { # compares value with each value of hash # stores key and value whenever current value is greater than prev +ious value @larger=($key, $value) if ($larger[1] < $value) ; print "$key key has a value $value \n"; } # finally prints the key which has larger value + print $larger[0]. " key has the larger value\n";

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