How do I reset an each() operation part-way through?

Current Perl documentation can be found at

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:

Using keys %hash in scalar context returns the number of keys in the hash and resets the iterator associated with the hash. You may need to do this if you use last to exit a loop early so that when you re-enter it, the hash iterator has been reset.
