in reply to Merge 2 hashes which contains duplicate Keys

It's been done.

use strict; use warnings; use Hash::Merge; use Data::Dumper; my %hash1 = ( this => 1, that => 2, the => 3, other => 4 ); my %hash2 = ( those => 1, them => 2, thine => 3, other => 42 ); my %merged = %{ Hash::Merge->new('RETAINMENT_PRECEDENT')->merge( \%has +h1, \%hash2 ) }; print Dumper \%merged;

Hash::Merge can merge arbitrarily deep hashes, following pre-defined rules for key conflict resolution.

    Thanks Dave. yes, I had gone through the Hash::Merge and it is a life savior. I want to learn more about perl data structure and hence trying things on my own without taking help from any module. Thanks for your time.

    Thanks from one Dave to another, saved me HEAPS of time, what an awesome module!

      You are welcome. :) Makes me happy to hear something I wrote several years ago ended up being helpful later on.
