This statement
printf "%10s\t=>%10s\n" x @ky, @ky, @vals;
is first outputting all keys, then all values. Here's an alternative without the intermediate arrays, using the defined or operator // to avoid a warning on an undef value.

#!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; my %hash = ("fred" => "flintstone", "dino" => undef, "barney" => "rubble", "betty" => "rubble", ); printf "%10s\t=>%10s\n", "keys", "values"; for ( keys %hash ) { printf "%10s\t=>%10s\n", $_, $hash{$_} // ''; }
