( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
This will get you started. If you want more help, you'll need to put more effort into your question:
declare or otherwise obtain list of files declare scalar for max (a, b) equal to undef for every file{ open the file for reach line{ split the line into scalars (current a, current b) if current a > max a then set max b = current b } close the file } you now have b from the maximum seen value of a


Update:
I'm not sure what the post has to do with hashes or hash files (I'm not even sure what is meant by a hash file), so my response didn't address that.

Title:
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.
