"be consistent"

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

G'day jdlev,

Here's an example using recursion. You'll need to modify this depending on what you want to do in the innermost loop: I just print the values. Also note that I've used 'sort keys %hash' to get consistent output; you may not need the additional overhead of sorting (in this case, just use 'keys %hash').

#!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; my %x = ( a => 1, b => 2 ); my %y = ( c => 3, d => 4 ); my %z = ( e => 5, f => 6 ); multi_for([\%x, \%y, \%z]); sub multi_for { my ($hashes, $values, $index) = @_; $values = [] unless defined $values; $index = 0 unless defined $index; if ($#$hashes >= $index) { my %hash = %{$hashes->[$index]}; for (sort keys %hash) { multi_for($hashes, [@$values, $hash{$_}], $index + 1); } } else { # Do something with $values, e.g. print "@$values\n"; } }

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.
