Sort Hash of Hashes by key valueby jgn (Initiate)
|on Mar 14, 2011 at 19:04 UTC||Need Help??|
jgn has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am new'ish to Perl and have taken on a project to create some scripts to monitor some Windows Servers.
The piece that is giving me a lot of trouble is sorting my hash of hashes I am generating as I go through a list of machines.
This is my snippet that tacks a hash onto the hash for each machine that meets my criteria, 97% full volume.
This all works fine. Each machine that meets this criteria is tacked onto the hash. However I am at a complete loss for how to sort by the value of one of these keys when I generate my report. I have tinkered with the various sort methods I have found in my google search and no joy.
While I'm sure there is a better way to do it than I have here... My question is how can I sort by key value in a hash of hashes and "rebuild" it as a sorted list for say ... sticking it into an HTML table?
Thanks in advance
