Q&A > Data Structures > How do I make a hash of arrays? contributed by chromatic

my %dramatis_personae = ( humans => [ 'hamnet', 'shakespeare', 'robyn', ], faeries => [ 'oberon', 'titania', 'puck', ], other => [ 'morpheus, lord of dreams' ], );
Access it like this:
foreach my $group (keys %dramatis_personae) { print "The members of $group are\n"; foreach (@{$dramatis_personae{$group}}) { print "\t$_\n"; } }
