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

You try and print a single value of the hash since the print statement is not in a loop construction.

foreach my $key (keys %hash) { print "$key $hash{$key}\n"; }
should print the collected counts.

Incidently, I don't see why you open the data file twice since you don't read any data the second time.

Personally I'd put the data in the hash while reading since this avoids slurping the whole file which can potentially be large.

my %hash; my $file = 'filehere.txt'; open(DATA, "$file") || die "Can not open: $!"; while (<DATA>) { chomp($_); $hash{$_}++; } close(DATA);

Hope this helps, -gjb-

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.
