Really close.

What your hash ends up looking like is:

%hash = ( 'one' => [ 'abc', 'def', 'ghi' ], 'two' => 3 );

This is because $hash{'two'} is being assigned the length of the array held in $hash{'one'}. (in the same way that $array_size = @array would assign $array_size the length of @array)

What I assuming you want is a hash that ends up like:

%hash = ( 'one' => [ 'abc', 'def', 'ghi' ], 'two' => [ 'abc', 'def', 'ghi' ] );
which can be accomplished by something like so:
$hash{'two'} = [ @{$hash{'one'}} ];

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
