2. Compare two arrays and show the elements that exist in both (I actually screwed up in my live question, but the answers were still informative). This is a great question because it shows how someone thinks. Lower level devs use nested loops (I did, when this was thrown at me a few years ago). Smart people use hash slices. Really smart people use 'undef'd hash slices to save memory.
Could you give an example of the "hash slice" method? Using hashes is a good way (something like my %temp; my @doubles = grep { ++$temp{$_} == 2 } @a1, @a2; works nicely), but I can't seem to figure out the "(undef'd) hash slice" method. Please enlighten me :-)

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.
