Try this...
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my %x = ( 1 => [qw(d e f)], 2 => [qw(a b c)], 3 => [qw(g h i)] ); my %rev = map { my $key=$_; map { $_=>$key} @{$x{$key}} } keys %x; print "$_ -> $rev{$_}\n" foreach sort keys %rev;

The trick (imho) is to build the "reverse" hash first and then deal with sorting / outputing that after the fact.

Btw, I'd suggest not using non-standard notation, even if it's comfortable for you. It'll (potentially) make things harder when you're trying to show other people.

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.
