 Need Help??

Try this

```## Fort test1

## sort in descending order by value1, select first
@values1 = map { \$_, \$HoH{\$_}{'Test1'}{'value1'} }
sort { \$HoH{\$b}{'Test1'}{'value1'} <=> \$HoH{\$a}{'Test1'}{'value1'}
+ } keys %HoH;

## sort in descending order by value2, select first
@values2 = map { \$_, \$HoH{\$_}{'Test1'}{'value2'} }
sort { \$HoH{\$b}{'Test1'}{'value2'} <=> \$HoH{\$a}{'Test1'}{'value2'}
+ } keys %HoH;

print "Fort Test1\n";
print "  ", \$values1[0], " has value1=", \$values1[1], "\n";
print "  ", \$values2[0], " has value2=", \$values2[1], "\n";

## For test2

## sort in descending order by value1, select first
@values1 = map { \$_, \$HoH{\$_}{'Test2'}{'value1'} }
sort { \$HoH{\$b}{'Test2'}{'value1'} <=> \$HoH{\$a}{'Test2'}{'value1'}
+ } keys %HoH;

## sort in descending order by value2, select first
@values2 = map { \$_, \$HoH{\$_}{'Test2'}{'value2'} }
sort { \$HoH{\$b}{'Test2'}{'value2'} <=> \$HoH{\$a}{'Test2'}{'value2'}
+ } keys %HoH;

print "Fort Test2\n";
print "  ", \$values1[0], " has value1=", \$values1[1], "\n";
print "  ", \$values2[0], " has value2=", \$values2[1], "\n";

Enjoy!
