in reply to Printing a hash in a specific order?

Another approach

my @records; $records[1] = { a => 1, d=>4, b=> 2, c=> 3}; $records[2] = { a => 11, d=>14, b=>12}; # didn't define 'c' here $records[3] = { a => 123, d=>10, e=>200, c=> 21, d=>9888 }; # differen +t order, 'b' absent my @keys = qw( a c b); # only want to print a c and b foreach my $record (@records){ print join "\t" => map { $_, length($record->{$_}) < 3 ? $record->{$_} : substr($record->{$_},0,1)} grep { defined $record->{$_}} @keys, "\n"; print "\n"; }
Output:
a	1	c	3	b	2
a	11	b	12
a	1	c	21
