in reply to Re^2: Clear / Initialize multiple hashes
in thread Clear / Initialize multiple hashes

but later on if I want to clear all of them how should I go about it?

The simplest way is to scope them such that they get reinitialised by re-entering the scope each time you want to re-use them:

for( some loop condition or contruct ) { my( %hash1, %hash2, %hash3 ); ## do stuff with them ... }

Each time that loop iterates, the hashes will be reinitialised for you.

But, it you really need to do it manually, you could use:

undef %$_ for \(%h1,%h2,%h3);

[Dumu]: Hello @jedikaiti & other Monks!
[Dumu]: Can't rememeber how to correctly tag other monks in chat
[Dumu]: hello jedikaiti
[Dumu]: got it. Anyway. Perl question. Can you use binmode more than once with an open filehandle to read a file first in binary mode, then in utf8 mode?
[ambrus]: Dumu: you can use binmode multiple times, but mostly at the start before you read things. it would be strange to change the io layers after you've already read things, and might not work too well.
[ambrus]: Dumu: why would you want to read the same file both in binary mode and utf8 mode?
[Corion]: Dumu: Yes, but switching needs to be done with caution, as you might read half an UTF-8 character in binary mode, and then switch to utf8 mode...
