in reply to How can we compare two hashed with each other for case insensitive data?

If case really doesn't matter, then the best solution is to just initialize the values with lc.

However, you can also set the values to lc after the fact as well:

lcvalues(@array1); lcvalues(@array2); sub lcvalues { for (@_) { if (ref $_ eq 'HASH') { lcvalues(values %$_); } elsif (ref $_ eq 'ARRAY') { lcvalues(@$_); } elsif (ref $_) { warn "Unknown data type: " . ref $_; } else { $_ = lc $_; } } }

[marto]: Corion, I can do some non-technical things, but there's no way for me to connect to the clients network.
[marto]: which is a shame, I had a really productive day yesterday
[Corion]: marto: Meh, so it'll be a day of cleaning out email...
[marto]: and hoped that I'd be able to continue the momentum :)
[marto]: I can't even access client email, nor my employers since those idiots moved to citrix
[marto]: it literally doesn't work. Also, via their citrix interface theres no way to open attachments, or upload an attachment for sending. The company policy is that you email you work account from a personal one, and forward it on from there :/
