    How can we know why things get printed twice? The code you showed does not even have a print statement!

    I am pushing a user name and an array of AD groups for that user name into a hash of arrays: Code: push (@{$newgrouphash{"$newdn"} },"$newgroup")
    You are not pushing an array of AD groups into a HoA. You are pushing the stringified version of a scalar into your HoA. For a start, drop all the double quotes around your variables. They serve no purpose. Then check whether $newgroup indeed contains a reference to your array of AD groups.

    And finally show us the code you use to output this data.


    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

      Sorry, new here, I used the print statements from the previous posters suggestions. The actual data being pushed into the HOA is a lot of code and is an AD query so it wouldn't compile. What I end up with is a key of Bob and an array containing groups: domain users, testing, server team etc
      push (@{$newgrouphash{"$newdn"} },"$newgroup"); foreach $newdn (sort keys %newgrouphash ) { print "Name:$newdn\n\t"; foreach $group ( sort @{$newgrouphash{$newdn}} ) { + if (!($group =~ /CN=Domain Users/i)) { # print "$group, "; + $res = `dsmod group $group -rmmbr \"$newdn\"`; + print "$res\n";
        Data Dumper Data Dumper Dumps the Data so the problem of accessing the HoA is seperated from populating the HoA

    As others have suggested, please post the code where you do the "push", and the "print".

    I re-read your statement:

    I am pushing a user name and an array of AD groups for that user name into a hash of arrays
    So -it sounds like you are pushing both the NAME and the GROUP into the hash value.
    This is in addition to the name being in the Key.

    If this is the case, it would indeed explain the name coming out twice, since you (or at least my posted code) prints the key and value.

    Anyway - this discussion would be a lot less abstract and hypothetical, if you posted your actual code.
    In it's absence, interest in assisting you is rapidly waning.

      sorry, trying to post the code but keep getting a duplicate post warning. Can you see it?
        One way to avoid that is to go back to the top of this thread (your original post) and edit it -- with careful attention to retaining --behind a strikeout -- anything you're deleting, and with prominent notes marking what you add.
      Hi, I am posting the code but don't see it displaying. This isn't through a lack of hiding code from you I am just battling to find my way around the site. Please be patient until I get the hang of it.
      have you managed to get my code?

    Funny :)

    If you want help, you'll need to provide sample data (as in Data::Dump, Data::Dumper ... ) as Basic debugging checklist explains
