in thread Ignore Case when comparing Hash Keys

Or just store the original key as the value of the canonicalized (lower-cased) hash. Look up in the lower case hash to find the key, then use the value of that hash to look up the value in the original hash.
#! /usr/bin/perl %hash1 = ("John", 43, "Paul", 25, "Marie", 22); %hash2 = ("john", 43, "Paul", 25, "marie", 22); my %lc_hash1 = map { lc $_ => $_ } keys %hash1; while (($KEY_2, $VALUE_2) = each %hash2){ if (exists $lc_hash1{lc $KEY_2}){ print "$KEY_2 : Matched\n"; print "Keys are: $lc_hash1{lc $KEY_2}, $KEY_2\n"; print "Values are: $hash1{$lc_hash1{lc $KEY_2}}, $VALUE_2\n"; } else{ print "$KEY_2 : Did not match\n"; } }

[james28909]: everything past the first two things you piked from my posts are irrelevant to me and my beliefs. they are side effects.
[james28909]: two or three. if it has to do with how humans are handling said situations, then that is after they were able to evolve into those problems. agnostic means only believe with evidence. i took that from a tyson video
[james28909]: and it seems that racism suggest that there is indeed a better race, but that is for evolution to decide
[1nickt]: "right now, humans are smarter than in any of those times": define "smart"
[erix]: ah, now you're appraoch downvote-territory ;)
