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

Store the order you want in an array.

$ perl -Mstrict -Mwarnings -E ' my %people; $people{ Fred }->{ age } = 37; $people{ Fred }->{ sex } = q{male}; $people{ Fred }->{ occ } = q{plumber}; $people{ Mary }->{ age } = 41; $people{ Mary }->{ sex } = q{female}; $people{ Mary }->{ occ } = q{barmaid}; my @order = qw{ age sex occ }; foreach my $person ( keys %people ) { say qq{$person:}; foreach my $attr ( @order ) { say qq{ $attr: $people{ $person }->{ $attr }}; } }' Mary: age: 41 sex: female occ: barmaid Fred: age: 37 sex: male occ: plumber $

I hope this is helpful.

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.
