DigitalKitty,
One of the issues you have is that you have not given names to your keys. Instead, you have used a value as a key. This is why the output of Data::Dumper is confusing. Consider this alternative:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my %data; while (<DATA>) { chomp; my ($ln, $fn, $score) = split ' '; $data{$ln} = {fn => $fn, score => $score}; } print Dumper(\%data); # Show just last names print "$_\n" for sort keys %data; # Show name and score for my $ln (sort keys %data) { my ($fn, $score) = @{$data{$ln}}{qw/fn score/}; print "$ln\t$fn\t$score\n"; } __DATA__ Lateur Bart 97 Pierce Jerrad 96 Unknown planetscape 101 Miller Katie 86

Cheers - L~R

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

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
