Since the weapon names don't seem to matter, only their attributes, I think it's simpler to iterate over the values of the weapons hash per Cristoforo's approach. This works with map, but I think it's even simpler (and IMHO clearer) to use for-loops:

Win8 Strawberry (32) Sun 12/27/2020 5:07:00 C:\@Work\Perl\monks >perl -Mstrict -Mwarnings -l use Data::Dumper; my $weapons_ref = { dagger => { cost => 8, damage => 4, armor => 0, }, shortsword => { cost => 10, damage => 5, armor => 0, }, warhammer => { cost => 25, damage => 6, armor => 0, }, longsword => { cost => 40, damage => 7, armor => 0, }, greataxe => { cost => 74, damage => 8, armor => 0, }, }; my $sum_result; my @sum_fields = qw/cost damage armor/; # map { # works # my $attrib = $_; # map { $sum_result->{$_} += $attrib->{$_} } @sum_fields # } values %$weapons_ref; for my $hr_attrib (values %$weapons_ref) { $sum_result->{$_} += $hr_attrib->{$_} for @sum_fields; } print Dumper $sum_result; ^Z $VAR1 = { 'cost' => 157, 'damage' => 30, 'armor' => 0 };

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:

  • 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.
