in thread Clean out da hash...

I thought
%hash = ();
would work, but it's not. And yes, I am using strict. The code is a bit long, but an abridged version is:
use strict; use warnings; my %hash; my @sets = qw(set_a set_b); foreach my $set ( @sets ) { &find_start($set); #defines start and end points to grab data &fill_hash(); # fill 'er up &print_hash(); #print out &clean_hash(); #clean it out }
The &find_start() looks throught the 6000 lines of text, and decides which line to start grabbing data, and which line to stopt at, based on the value of $set. I thought maybe I was grabbing the wrong stuff, but everything "adds up". Pun intended.
