in reply to Perl Hash Script

One thing I can spot right away regards these lines.

foreach my $empnum(sort keys %empwork) { my $periods=0; $periods++; my $hours = 0; $hours += $empwork{$empnum};

Your code boils down to

foreach my $empnum(sort keys %empwork) { my $periods = 1; my $hours = $empwork{$empnum}
I doubt that is what you really want.

Did you mean this instead?

my $periods=0; my $hours = 0; foreach my $empnum(sort keys %empwork) { $periods++; $hours += $empwork{$empnum};

    I am not getting the exact output for your code Sir.

      I never claimed you it would. I was merely questioning whether your script might suffer from a logical error, and explaining why I think it does. Does it?

      Edit: s/you/it/

        Yes. You are right.
