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

As mentioned by Transient, you would take a reference to the second array and use it as the value of the hash, keyed by the values of the first hash:

use strict; use warnings; my @Property = qw(FolderProperty1 FolderProperty2 FolderProperty3); my %O_P = ( 'FolderObject' => \@Property );

Then whenever you wanted to refer to the properties, you would have to dereference, like this:

my $second_property = $O_P{'FolderObject'}->[1];

If @Object and @Property are prepopulated with a large number of values, you need to figure out how to take the right slices from @Property to assign the right values to each @Object (maybe they all have the same number of properties?).

As mentioned, this assumes that the keys in @Object are unique -- you'll overwrite part of your hash if there are duplicate entries in @Object.

Update: Ah, I see you are parsing XML. As mentioned by davidrw, you may not need to re-invent the wheel, here. :)

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.
