in reply to Is there a simple syntax to logically slice a hash?

You can take a functional approach and chain grep and map on a single line:

#! perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dump; my %h1 = (catastrophe => 1, cataclysm => 2, dogma => 3); my %h2 = map { $_ => $h1{$_} } grep { /^cat/ } keys %h1; dd %h2;

Output:

1:33 >perl 542_SoPW.pl ("catastrophe", 1, "cataclysm", 2) 1:37 >

Hope that helps,
