in thread max "value " of an hash

# get values with numerical sort @values = sort {$a<=>$b} values %hash; # get the array last value, that considered the max value of the hash $max=$values[$#values]; print $max;

    You can find only one key from hash...
    Some time you can have situatuin like this:

    max value = 5
    but in hash present

    This algorithm can show only last key or value...

      Hi Khariton,

      Yes you are right, for my previous node I just show how to get the maximum value in a hash. Now, I had updated the code, that will get the maximum value, as well as the corresponding keys.

      # get values with numerical sort @values = sort {$a<=>$b} values %hash; # process each element foreach (keys %hash) { # get the key name of the maximum value print "\nkey : $_ : value $hash{$_}" if ($values[$#values] == $has +h{$_}); }
