Tye, you are pushing onto a scalar. Perl usually prefers for you to push things onto an array. :)

>perl -Mstrict -we "my $foo = []; push $foo, 'bar'"
Type of arg 1 to push must be array (not private variable) at -e line 1, at EOF
Execution of -e aborted due to compilation errors.

>perl -Mstrict -we "my %h; push $h{foo}, 'bar'"
Type of arg 1 to push must be array (not hash element) at -e line 1, at EOF
Execution of -e aborted due to compilation errors.
I think what you wanted to say here was:
my %merge; for my $key ( keys %myhash ) { push @{ $merge{ join $;, sort @{ $myhash{$key}} } }, $key; }
I like it though, and it helps me solve an e-mail consolidation problem I had been working on.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
