in reply to Selecting particular key-value pairs in hashes

Non-destructively:

my %hash2 = map {$_ => $hash{$_}} grep {/^\d+_\d+$/} keys %hash;

    You can pick more than one value at a time out of a hash — see merlyn's code and gaal's remark.

    my %hash2 = @hash{ grep /\d+_\d+/, keys %hash };

    Update: thanks to bobf for notifying me that this code makes, uh, very little sense. Here's a hash slice incantation that actually works:

    my %hash2; @hash2{ @$_ } = @hash{ @$_ } for [ grep /\d+_\d+/, keys %hash ]; # or more verbosely my %hash2; { my @key = grep /\d+_\d+/, keys %hash; @hash2{ @key } = @hash{ @key }; }

    Makeshifts last the longest.
