in reply to Slicing multilevel hashes

A slice -- even a hash slice -- is not a hash. It's a list (that includes only the values components, not the keys). That's why the sigil is @ and not %. You cannot hash-dereference a list. As dragonchild astutely suggested, you can use map to get the effect you want.

map @{$_}{@keys}, @hoh{@keys};

    Thanks for the speedy replies. I did use map to get a working solution (map{ $_->{d} } @hoh{@keys}) but I thought there might be another way to do it (thanks for the example). In the back of my mind I didn't think the @hoh{@keys}{d} idea was possible, but if it was then if anyone would know how to do it, it would be someone at Perl Monks!
