( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm attempting to debug a program that I can not get to work. Basically, I have a list of integer values that I read into a hash. I need to output every integer between 1 and 5000 that are not in the hash. My problem arises when I attempt to check if a value exists in the hash. No matter what I do, the condition always seems to evaluate as false. I'm obviously doing something wrong, but I can not figure out what. Can anyone shed some light on the situation?

The code is below...
my %faclist; my $i; open(DATA, "AXP_FACS.DAT"); while(<DATA>){ my $line = $_; $faclist{$line} = ""; } close(DATA); for ($i=1;$i<5001;$i++){ if exists $faclist{$i}{#THIS IS WHERE THE PROBLEM IS print "$i\n"; } }

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.
