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

The problem was that in your original code you were treating $u ambiguously: both as a hashref and as an array index. The code below fixes it:

use strict; my $name = 'test'; my %test; push @{$test{"$name"}}, { name => 'me',age => 'here' }; push @{$test{"$name"}}, { name => 'meAgain',age => 'Nowhere' }; push @{$test{"two"}}, { name => 'you',age => 'there' }; push @{$test{"two"}}, { name => 'AndYou',age => 'AndThere' }; my ($s,$u,$n); foreach $s (keys %test) { foreach $u ( 0..$#{$test{$s}} ) { foreach $n (keys %{$test{$s}[$u]}) { print "$s $u $n: $test{$s}[$u]{$n} - \n"; } } } __END__ test 0 name: me - test 0 age: here - test 1 name: meAgain - test 1 age: Nowhere - two 0 name: you - two 0 age: there - two 1 name: AndYou - two 1 age: AndThere -

Update: My original solution fixed the infinite looping, but produced an output different from what I think the OP intended; the version above fixes that.

BTW, the price of eternal vigilance is using warnings. With use warnings, this is what your original code produces:

Use of reference "HASH(0x814ccf0)" as array index at 468034.pl line 20 +. Out of memory!

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.
