How do you print the key(s) of the largest value in a hash? I have a script that counts the occurences of something and the occurences it the value of that key.
Key -> Value red -> 2 pink -> 1 orange -> 4 black -> 3 blue -> 4
And I need it to determine the greatest value, sort by it and only print the highest keys/value. In this example the highest value is 4 shared by ORANGE and BLUE. I need it so it just prints these two hash elements.

Whether it's just one highest value or if X number share it, all the highest valued key/value pairs need to be sorted.

I am very confused at how to do this.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
