Re: [cluna] Syntax Errors In Program With Hash



That imports the `sum` function from the List::Util module. (`sum` is used in the formula to find the average of the pvalues) my $avg = sum( @{ $hash{$region} }) / @{ $hash{$region} }; This takes the sum of the pvalues array, @{ $hash{$region} ) and divides the sum by the number of pvalues in the array, @{ $hash{$region} } sum puts it's argument in list context and the division puts the array in scalar context (or the number of pvalues).
