in reply to hash with both values and keys unique to each other

Assuming your question is "How to keep the values of a hash unique?", the answer is, well, two hashes:

my (%hash, %rhash); while (<>) { chomp; my ($key, $val) = split(/\t/, $_, 2); next if (exists $hash{$key} or exists $rhash{$val}); $hash{$key} = $val; $rhash{$val} = 1; }

Of course, there will be some manual housekeeping of the second hash. You could make it look nicer by creating an object that mimics a hash.

    This is how I was able to do it. But it might not be a generalized solution

    $seen{$chr1}++; $seen{$chr2}++; if (($seen{$chr1}>1)||($seen{$chr2}>1)){ next; } else{ $hash_chr{$chr1}=$chr2; }

      Since your structure is

      loop { if (condition) { next; } # no else! other code; }

      You don't actually need the else block. Removing it will make your code look quite a bit more clean.
