FreeKB - Multidimensional Hash
Perl - Multidimensional Hash

Let's say you want to create a hash that has two (or more) keys, like this. In this example, the "name" key is below the "employee" key.

'employee' {
             'name' => 'John Doe',


Create the multidimensional keys and value.

my %hash = ( employee => { name => "John Doe" } );


Or like this.

my $hash{"employee"}->{"name"} = "John Doe";


Dumper can be used to print the hash.

print Dumper \%hash;


Which will produce the following.

$VAR1 = {
          'employee' => {
                          'name' => 'Jane Doe'


Print the name key.

print $hash{"employee"}->{"name"};


Which will produce the following.

John Doe
