Re: How can one find five max values and five min values with positions in descending and ascending order from arrays?

in reply to How can one find five max values and five min values with positions in descending and ascending order from arrays?

I have two arrays i.e. @x and @y containing eight names and eight numerical values, respectively. Each name in @x corresponds to the particular value in @y at the specific position.

DON'T!

This is a bad datastructure decision and this task is just one of the many that are harder than necessary due to this. Do store the data as an array of arrays or array of hashes!

[perldigious]: Quick question, is undef %hash a recommended/good way to delete an entire hash structure from memory? Or sould I be doing it some other way?
[1nickt]: The best way is to scope it tightly so it just goes away when you are finished with it.
[perldigious]: but... but... perldigious is the unvirtuous kind of lazy in this case. :-)
[perldigious]: Just kidding. Thanks 1nickt, I'll go ahead and do it the right way. An extra set of brackets and a little extra indentation isn't too much to ask.
