( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I would flip the data model around. One book may contain multiple chapters. They will also normally be sequentially numbered so I'd make an array of them.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my %book = ( name => 'ABC - an adventure', author => 'monk', isbn => '123-890', issn => '@issn', chapter => [], ); $book{chapter}[1] = { name => 'Testing Times', page => 2, }; $book{chapter}[2] = { name => 'Importing Hash', page => 99, }; print "$book{name}\n"; my $i = 1; while (exists $book{chapter}[$i]) { print "Ch: $i '$book{chapter}[$i]{name}' ($book{chapter}[$i]{page} +)\n"; $i++ }
ABC - an adventure Ch: 1 'Testing Times' (2) Ch: 2 'Importing Hash' (99)
