Remember that a hash is a datastructure where each element has a *key* and a *value*. Looking at your code I think your intent was to create a hash (%dataoptions) that had one key "Gender", and that key "Gender" having a related value that is an array whose elements are "Male" and "Female".

So, this:

my %dataoptions = ( "Gender", ["Male", "Female"] );
should be this:
my %dataoptions = ( "Gender" => ["Male", "Female"] );
The other thing to remember is that this:
["Male", "Female"]
creates a *reference* to an anonymous array. So in hash %dataoptions, the value corresponding to key "Gender" is a *reference* to an anomyous array containing elements "Male" and "Female". So then when you do
foreach $option ($dataoptions{$columns[$i]})
$option is a *reference* to an array.

I think you want your loop to be something like this:

for ($i = 0; $i < @columns; $i++) { print $columns[$i].': '; my $arrayref = $dataoptions{$columns[$i]}; foreach $option (@$arrayref) { print '<input type="radio" name="'.$columns[$i].'" value="'.$ +option.'"> '.$option.' '; } }
HTH.

Title:
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.
