Here's a simple way to take the difference of sets.

use Data::Dumper; %one = ( 'a' => 1, 'b' => 2, 'c' => 3, 'd' => 4, 'e' => 5, 'f' => 6,); %two = ( 'a' => -1, 'e' => -2, 'i' => -3, 'o' => -4, 'u' => -5,); print Dumper(\%one, \%two); %tmp = %one; delete @tmp{keys %two}; print Dumper(\%tmp); %tmp = %two; delete @tmp{keys %one}; print Dumper(\%tmp);
Running the above produces the following:
$VAR1 = { 'e' => 5, 'c' => 3, 'a' => 1, 'b' => 2, 'd' => 4, 'f' => 6 }; $VAR2 = { 'e' => -2, 'u' => -5, 'a' => -1, 'o' => -4, 'i' => -3 }; $VAR1 = { 'c' => 3, 'b' => 2, 'd' => 4, 'f' => 6 }; $VAR1 = { 'u' => -5, 'i' => -3, 'o' => -4 };
