That would be easier except this is tied into a GUI and user values are going into array 0, old values are in array 1. I think you may have given me an answer anyhow though; flaten tag, type, and string into a 2d array then sort then use that output to order the hash output...
#head of code my @array; foreach my $tag (keys %licensehash) { foreach my $type (keys %{$licensehash{$tag}}) { push(@array, [$tag,$type,$licensehash{$tag}{$type}[3]]); } } @array = sort {$a->[2] cmp $b->[2]} @array; #body of program (used more than once) foreach my $order (@array) { print "$licensehash{@$order[0]}{@$order[1]}[3]"; }

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.
