It is not clear what you are trying to do, but let me make a guess. I expect that you want to compare file for duplicates and are using MD5 as a signature to do so.

If this is the task, it will go easier if the MD5 signatures are the keys of the hash and the filenames are the file paths. that way, when you come upon a new file, simply calculate its MD5 signature, and see if that signature already exists as a hash key.

Here is some code to illustrate that:

my %file_sig; find( \&find_dup, $root_dir); sub find_dup { my $name = $_; my $full_name = $File::Find::name; my $dir = $File::Find::dir; if (-f $name) { open IN, "<$full_name"; my $digest = Digest::MD5->new->addfile(*IN)->hexdigest; close IN; if (exists $file_sig{ $digest }) { print "$full_name is a duplicate of $file_sig{ $digest }\n"; } else { $file_sig{ $digest } = $full_name; } } }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • 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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
