Calling a hash through an array valueby c (Hermit)
|on Jan 08, 2003 at 21:11 UTC||Need Help??|
c has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've been struggling with this for about an hour and I feel like I am dancing around the answer, but just not getting it. You can see I have problems understanding references...
I pass over an array in a for loop and want to stuff values into a defined hash. The hash being called is created from a value within the array
I'd then like to put other array values into this hash within the same for loop
I receive the error about can't use string as hash ref while strict refs. So I tried
but still it was a no go. Can someone please school me on the correct manner of doing this? I'll beat it into my skull by day's end.
thanks very much -c
