in thread hash of hashes

You seem to be pretty much at sea on this, so here's a bit of an elaboration on marinersk's approach. I'm assuming you can read "statements" from a file, get rid of newlines (see chomp), write data to a file, etc.

>perl -wMstrict -le "use Data::Dumper; ;; my @statements = ( 'strawberry red green rose', 'apple red rose', 'mango green', ); ;; my %hash; for my $statement (@statements) { my ($fruit, @colors) = split m{\s+}xms, $statement; for my $color (@colors) { $hash{$fruit}{$color} = 1; } } ;; print Dumper \%hash; " $VAR1 = { 'mango' => { 'green' => 1 }, 'strawberry' => { 'rose' => 1, 'green' => 1, 'red' => 1 }, 'apple' => { 'rose' => 1, 'red' => 1 } };

See perldsc for a discussion of techniques for iterating through a data structure of this (hash-of-hashes, HoH) or any other kind. As others have said, we would be happy to answer further questions, but the community really likes to see supporting work as well.

Update: Also see Re: hash of hashes for a different, perhaps more directly expressive data structure.
