The previous answer shows how to start to address the problem raised, but I get the impression that the question which has been asked is the wrong question.

Does the hash contain these 'thousands of words' as a key or a value? It would have been useful if the original question could have contained a small hash showing the data layout.

Perhaps the real question should explain why you have such a hash and why you're looking for string matches?

    By posting your (perfectly valid) point as a reply to me, rather than the OP, you have probably ensured that he will never see it.

      Yes, unfortunately as my currently lowly Monkly status shows, whilst I've had an account for a while, I'm new to contributing around here, and thought that since your response appeared to solve most of his problem, I wasn't going to start a new thread.

      Anyway, not sure what the default visible reply depth is, but I'm sure it's more than 2....

        Hm. Two years is normally more than enough time to spot the patterns of usage in this place.

        I wasn't going to start a new thread.

        Posting a second direct response to the OP is not "starting a new thread".

        Its not about depth; its about him getting a notification that he has a reply.
