in reply to Incomplete Output When Printing Hash

I have no idea if this is going to be of any help, but, quite possibly, this is going to give you a more reasonable count on your data:

my $count = values %myobjtdets;

    I don't understand. How could
        my $count = values %myobjtdets;
    produce anything at all different from
        my $count = keys %myobjtdets;
    for the  $count scalar?

      Thank you for your comment, AnomalousMonk. I thought that something like:

      print scalar values %hash;

      would return a count on only the defined values. After a quick try, this is obviously not the case. My error.

      This leads me to another possible solution illustrated in the following session under the Perl debugger:

      DB<1> %hash = (jan => 1, feb => 2, mar => undef, apr => undef, may = +> 5); DB<2> x %hash 0 'feb' 1 2 2 'jan' 3 1 4 'may' 5 5 6 'mar' 7 undef 8 'apr' 9 undef DB<3> print scalar grep {defined $_} values %hash; 3 DB<4> print scalar grep {defined $_} keys %hash; 5
