Don't count same named occurrences from an array. Use the names as keys to a hash so that any duplicates just overwrite the key/value of the same name that had been encoutered earlier. If you store something useful in each value, then you might not want to just clobber the old. To append new values (in the same key), you can say: $stufhash{$namekey} .= $newvalue;If the hash doesn't have a key '$namekey' yet, it will create one with value '$newvalue' but if it's already there, it'll be appended to the old. If they're all pipe-delimited things that you want to preserve for later spliting, you might need to test if it has a value and append a pipe to the end of it's value before adding the $newvalue. That is:
if ($stufhash{$namekey}) { $stufhash{$namekey} .= "|" . $newvalue; } else { $stufhash{$namekey} = $newvalue; }
I hope this is helpful. TTFN & Shalom.

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.
