An alternate way to get the United States' state names is by using the CPAN module Locale::SubCountry:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Locale::SubCountry; use Data::Dumper qw(Dumper); #Create an object representing a certain country my $subcountry = Locale::SubCountry->new('US'); #Query to find this country's subcountries. my %states = $subcountry->code_full_name_hash; #Prints the name/code pairs for every US state print Dumper(\%states); __END__

Besides the obvious benefit of keeping these details in a central location, this module will tell you the state/province/county/etc of all the countries in the ISO 3166-2 sub country code list.

Updated: I changed the code example to use the method code_full_name_hash which returns a hash where the state code is the key and the value is the state's full name. This is so my example returns the same as tye's first example.

The method name was self describing, if you'd like the reverse (like I had before), use the full_name_code method.

  • 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.
