in thread Need help on hashes.

Thank you all for the responses. The example and the explanation are very informative. Hopefully, I'll not experience (i.e. create) any errors when try it out in my script. :-)

For the record, this is not a homework assignment as apl implies. It's a reasonable thing to suspect but it's incorrect and I don't want the monks to think I'm taking advantage of their help. I'm a network engineer tasked with making sense out of years worth of accumulated syslog data. My code skills (a little C 10 years ago and sporadic uses of perl over the years) are quite limited. The question about whether or not to use a hash was a sincere inquiry as I wasn't sure if there was a more appropriate structure which to employ.

Thank you all again for your help. It is sincerely appreciated.
