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

G'day virudinesh,

Perhaps you could clarify your intent or, at least, the rationale behind what you want. Currently, you're doing this:

$ perl -Mstrict -Mwarnings -E ' my %a=(); $a{1}{"a"}{"A"}="FIRST"; $a{1}{"c"}{"B"}="THIRD"; $a{1}{"b"}{"C"}="SECOND"; foreach my $k1 ( sort keys %a ) { foreach my $k2 ( sort keys %{$a{$k1}} ) { foreach my $k3 ( sort keys %{$a{$k1}{$k2}} ) { print "$a{$k1}{$k2}{$k3}\n"; } } } ' FIRST SECOND THIRD

Did you perhaps want something like this:

$ perl -Mstrict -Mwarnings -E ' my @items_to_print_outside_loop; my %a=(); $a{1}{"a"}{"A"}="FIRST"; $a{1}{"c"}{"B"}="THIRD"; $a{1}{"b"}{"C"}="SECOND"; foreach my $k1 ( sort keys %a ) { foreach my $k2 ( sort keys %{$a{$k1}} ) { foreach my $k3 ( sort keys %{$a{$k1}{$k2}} ) { push @items_to_print_outside_loop, "$a{$k1}{$k2}{$k3}"; } } } print join("\n", @items_to_print_outside_loop), "\n"; ' FIRST SECOND THIRD

or like this:

$ perl -Mstrict -Mwarnings -E ' sub print_outside_loop { print "@_\n" } my %a=(); $a{1}{"a"}{"A"}="FIRST"; $a{1}{"c"}{"B"}="THIRD"; $a{1}{"b"}{"C"}="SECOND"; foreach my $k1 ( sort keys %a ) { foreach my $k2 ( sort keys %{$a{$k1}} ) { foreach my $k3 ( sort keys %{$a{$k1}{$k2}} ) { print_outside_loop($a{$k1}{$k2}{$k3}); } } } ' FIRST SECOND THIRD

Update: removed -Mdiagnostics (3 instances). A cut-and-paste error which got accidentally propagated. It doesn't hurt but it's not needed and might be confusing with respect to the reason for its inclusion. (Oops! Update of update: s/It does hurt/It doesn't hurt/)

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
