Hi Perl Monks,

I want to pass two hashes and a scalar to a subroutine and do a little work with them. Problem I'm getting is that the passed hashes don't seem to be recognized, as in, the if statement gives a "use of uninitialized value". Do you guys have any idea how to pass the hashes so that you can edit them? Many Thanks.

sub count_orientation($ \% \%){ my $ref = shift; my %x = %{(shift)}; my %y = %{(shift)}; $x{$ref}{amount}++; if ($y{$ref}{orientation} eq "for"){ $x{$ref}{amountFor}++; } else { $x{$ref}{amountRev}++; } } &count_orientation ($ref_end, %error_start, %score);

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