Hi Monks, I have 2 strings and I want to create a hash with the pairwise elements
my $str1="a,b,c" my $str2="1,2,3" ## output: { a => 1, b => 2, c => 3}
I have been trying to come up with a nice concise perlish way of building this hash using map, split and pop/shift (etc) rather than the boring old for loop with indices. It seems so simple, but yet my perl is just not cutting it at the moment. Anyone have any cool solutions ? Best Regards, Michael
