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

You were using $family{$label}[$names_idx] as an array ref whether it was an array ref or not. I added an if to avoid the problem.

@names always had one and only one member: a reference to an array of names. You probably meant to do @names = @{$family{$label}};. That you had four nested loops, but only three levels should have been a clue.

0..$#array is harder to read than doing a foreach on the array.

Here are the changes:

foreach my $label ( sort keys(%family) ) { print "$label\n"; foreach my $name ( @{ $family{$label} } ) { print "\t$name\n"; if (ref($name)) { foreach my $inner_name ( @{ $name } ) { print "\t\t$inner_name\n"; } } } }
if I use strict, the following code must be removed

That's not a good way of thinking. The code needed to be fixed, not removed. The problem existed whether use strict was used or not. The error was just silent when you removed the use strict.

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.
