As you're dealing with passwords, I hope you've considered the security implications. If not, please do so.

A little more code than my %pword = (Rich => '', Broke => '',); would have been useful. I'm not sure why you'd consider reversing the hash. You haven't described what problem you're encountering using a username as a key. Here's a few code snippets that might prove helpful:

exists $pword{$username}
Returns TRUE if $username is a key in %pword, FALSE otherwise. See exists.
length $pword{$username}
Returns TRUE if a password has been set (i.e. not the original zero-length value of ''), FALSE otherwise. See length.
Returns the current password for $username.
$pword{$username} = $password
Sets a new password for $username.

If you're having fundamental problems with how to handle hashes, take a look at perldata.

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.
