ikegami,
Alternatively, you could use Tie::IxHash instead of a hash. The syntax is the same (thanks to tie), but the contents are ordered.

It should be made clear that the order is the insertion order and not an arbitrary sort criteria. While the module does provide rudimentary sort capability, it is limited to asciibetical sorts of the keys or values.

Tie::Hash::Sorted may be a better fit.

Cheers - L~R

    Thanks for the info
    I was hoping to avoid using Tie:: Hash
    a) Because I haven't used it before and I'm not sure of syntax.
    b) I was hoping for a more simple solution that would avoid installing the Tie:: Hash module
    Gavin
      a) There's a first time for everything
      b) Installing a module sometimes is the simple solution, and we have CPAN conveniently provided for us
