This gets around the package variable issue
package Data::Hash::Flatten; use Storable qw(dclone); sub this { my @args = ([], @_[1 .. $#_]); Data::Hash::Flatten->_flatten(@args); } sub _flatten { my (undef, $flattened, $href, $field, $depth, $flat_rec ) = @_; @$flattened = () unless defined($depth); if ( ref $href ) { my @key = keys %$href; for my $key_i ( 0 .. $#key ) { my $key = $key[$key_i]; $flat_rec->{ $field->[$depth] } = $key; Data::Hash::Flatten->_flatten($flattened, $href->{$key}, $field, $depth + 1, $flat_rec); } } else { $flat_rec->{ hits } = $href; my $new_rec = dclone $flat_rec; push @$flattened, $new_rec; } @$flattened; } package main; use Data::Dumper; my $a = { bill => { '5/27/96' => { 'a.dat' => 1, 'b.txt' => 2, 'c.lsp' => 3 } }, jimm => { '6/22/98' => { 'x.prl' => 9, 'y.pyt' => 8, 'z.tcl' => 7 } } }; my @a = Data::Hash::Flatten->this( $a, [qw(name date file)] ); print Dumper( \@a );
Hackish, but effective. Perhaps a better way around this is to re-write it as a class with methods and properties as opposed as to a function tucked away in it's own package.


update: changed code in this to suck less (wasn't passing the correct args)

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.
