in thread Hash Question

Hi Choroba, That's exaclty what I mean! but i can't figure out what's wrong with it? i've included it in my coding but it doesn't work:
foreach (<$ah>) { my $nullval = ' '; my @text = split(/\t/); my $value (@text[11, 12, 14, 15, 19]) if ($bHash{ $text[3] } eq $value) { $bHash{ $text[0] } = $value; last; print OUT2 join( "\t", @text[1,2,3,4,11,5,6,8,7,11,12]),"\t$nullva +l\t$nullval\t$nullval\t$nullval\t$nullval\t$nullval\t$nullval\t$nullv +al\t$nullval\t$nullval\t1\t1\n"; } }
