Re: [pinky] Compare two hash of arrays in perl

I use something similar below (more advanced) for comparing incoming data feeds with current known column structure. vendors love to change column orders. :)

Using powers of 2 you can compare multiple arrays.

my %h = ( 
tab1 => [qw(a b c d)],
tab2 => [qw(c d f g h)],
tab3 => [qw(b c d a i)],
my @tables = sort keys %h;

my %matches;
foreach my $t (1 .. @tables) {
$matches{$_} |= 2**$t for @{$h{ $tables[$t-1] }};

foreach my $m (sort keys %matches) {
my @found;
foreach my $t (1 .. @tables) {
push @found, $tables[$t-1] if $matches{$m} & 2**$t;
print "$m exists in ", (@found? join(",",@found) : 'None' ),"\n";


a exists in tab1,tab3
b exists in tab1,tab3
c exists in tab1,tab2,tab3
d exists in tab1,tab2,tab3
f exists in tab2
g exists in tab2
h exists in tab2
i exists in tab3
