( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Well, it seems to work... So that's certainly a good start. I use two alternatives for this. It depends on whether I need to know the frequency of items or if I need more set like semantics.

Here is the bag example:

use strict; use Data::Dumper; my @items = ('this', 'that', 'that', 'those', 'these', 'them', 'thou') +; my $bag; map {$bag->{$_}++} @items; print Dumper($bag); __END__ $VAR1 = { 'these' => 1, 'those' => 1, 'thou' => 1, 'them' => 1, 'that' => 2, 'this' => 1 };

And here is the set example:

use strict; use Set::Scalar; use Data::Dumper; my @items = ('this', 'that', 'that', 'those', 'these', 'them', 'thou') +; my $set = Set::Scalar->new(@items); print Dumper($set->members); __END__ $VAR1 = 'those'; $VAR2 = 'these'; $VAR3 = 'thou'; $VAR4 = 'them'; $VAR5 = 'that'; $VAR6 = 'this';

Hazah! I'm Employed!
