Another approach
my @records; $records[1] = { a => 1, d=>4, b=> 2, c=> 3}; $records[2] = { a => 11, d=>14, b=>12}; # didn't define 'c' here $records[3] = { a => 123, d=>10, e=>200, c=> 21, d=>9888 }; # differen +t order, 'b' absent my @keys = qw( a c b); # only want to print a c and b foreach my $record (@records){ print join "\t" => map { $_, length($record->{$_}) < 3 ? $record->{$_} : substr($record->{$_},0,1)} grep { defined $record->{$_}} @keys, "\n"; print "\n"; }
a	1	c	3	b	2
a	11	b	12
a	1	c	21

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
