You are using the same key for multiple values. You will only retain the last value assigned to the hash for a given key. For example 'TOTAL QUALITY' has values 8 and 14, only 14 is retained.

Most likely a hash is not appropriate for whatever you are trying to achieve. You could however:

use warnings; use strict; use Data::Dump::Streamer; my @data = <DATA>; my %dataPos; chomp @data; push @{$dataPos{$data[$_]}}, $_ for 0 .. $#data; Dump (\%dataPos); __DATA__ WELL TOTAL QUALITY POSITION NAME TOTAL QUALITY POSITION NAME


$HASH1 = { "" => [ 3 ], "POSITION NAME" => [ 2, 5 ], "TOTAL QUALITY" => [ 1, 4 ], WELL => [ 0 ] };

Which creates a list of positions for each key value.

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.
