in reply to compare an array of hashes

Functions such as each_array and pairwise from List::MoreUtils will allow you to iterate over two lists at a time and process them. This assumes that your lists are similar and you are just trying to get different items.

If your data is key driven then you can use a hash to find the unique keys and then grep them from the list.

my @wanted; my %keys; $keys{$_->{flag}}++ foreach (@array1, @array2); my @unique = grep {$keys{$_->{flag}} == 1} @array2; print Dumper(@unique);

    This is exactly what I was looking for. How do I get a list of the keys that are common to both ?
