Dr Manhattan has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi all

Quick question- How do I reference a value in a hash in a hash, while I'm in a foreach loop?

foreach my $x (values %hash{}{}) { #do something }

I'm really not sure how its supposed to work and I can't find something similar on the web

    Hi there, not really sure what you're asking. In your example, the variable $x will hold the current iteration value taken from the hash. Do you need another value from the hash? If so what is it you want?

    %hash{}{} is a syntax error. Did you have this in mind?
    for my $x (values %hash) { print $x->{inner_key}; }

    If not, please be more specific.
