I did do searches for "array to hash conversion" but all results came up with examples that use 'map' and did not seem to work for my specific conversion (the array values becoming the keys and the array index numbers becoming the values).
in reply to Re: better array to hash conversion
in thread better array to hash conversion
Sorry for asking what might look like a dumb question to an expert, but my Perl skills are still limited.
Anyway, thanks for your reply and thanks to everybody else who replied, too!
