in thread Approximate Matching Key

Minor typo...

foreach (@keys) { $low = $_ if $_ <= $try; last if $_ >= $try; }

The = was missing in the $low line, so it would miss exact matches. It should still be present on the last line as well, despite my first instinct :-), because we can guarantee to have found a match.
