in reply to Manipulating key/value output

Merge or replace?

A simple example:
use warnings; use strict; use Data::Dumper; my %hash = ( output1 => 'on', output2 => 'on', output3 => 'on', announcement => 'test', ); $hash{$_} = $hash{announcement} for keys %hash; delete $hash{announcement}; print Dumper(\%hash);

    Thanks for the Reply. Not quite what I was looking for though. Basically I want to take the output1 entry and merge it with test while stripping out the = on and anouncement =(if that makes sense)

    Also not sure if this applies or not, but my variables can change. Sometimes I will have output1, sometimes output2 and output3, sometimes outpout 1 and output4 (can go up to 40 at least). It will vary. The only constant will be announcement = 'whatever the announcement is'

    The thing that I am wondering now is if I should have output = set as a constant instead of output1, output2, etc.. Meaning env = <this will change> and announcement = <this will change> and then manipulating from there... That might work better maybee??

[marto]: the ticketing system does not accept calls via email, nor has it a working API. It's tied into Active Directory for authentication and the Solaris boxes aren't on that domain
[Corion]: The one thing I haven't figured out a solution to is how to get an edge-trigger instead of sending an email every 5 minutes if the usage is above 90%. I want one mail when it goes over 90% but no more emails as long as it stays between 90% and 95%.
[Corion]: marto: Clever! ;)
[Corion]: You can only reach me by pager
[Corion]: Maybe the solution would be to launch a cron job every minute that takes two measurements a minute apart and sends a mail if the usage is below on the first and above threshold on the last measurement
[marto]: that's essentially it :)
[marto]: I think the long term solution would be to have sysadmins that do their job, so I don't have to do everything :P
[marto]: they already have an entire BMC patrol system, which they disabled, because it was sending out spurious messages. So rather than fix the issue, or even find out what it was, they turned it off. No messages, can't be any problems, right?
[Corion]: marto: But having open tickets / incidents increases the pressure on them ;) Of course, likely your contract / SLA specifies an upper limit for the number of incidents :-D
[Corion]: marto: Ow ...
