If the purpose of @emp and @fields is to restrict the output to just those, then you can use them to filter.

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Data::Dumper; my @emp = ('riya','vinoth'); my @fields = ('age','company','call','address','country','name'); my %nameh = map { $_, 1 } @emp; my %fieldh = map { $_, 1 } @fields; my @array = ( 'name riya', 'age 34', 'company xxxx', 'fax 8765432109', 'name vinoth', 'age 25', 'call 12345678', 'company xxxx', 'address asdd', 'country Ind', ); my %hash; my $name; while (@array) { my $line = shift @array; if (my ($field, $value) = $line =~ /^(.*) (.*)/) { $name = $value if 'name' eq $field; $hash{$name}{$field} = $value if ($nameh{$name} && $fieldh{$fi +eld}); } else { warn "Invalid line '$line'.\n"; } } print Dumper \%hash;

The output will omit the fax field I added to riya's data because it was not found in @fields.

Update: added name to list of fields! This is what comes of not testing your code.

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (NASB)
