Hash of hashes problem

%product=();
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";

open(DB, "filedb.txt");
@db = <DB>;
close(DB);

foreach $_ (@db){
($SDescription,$Price,$Key) = split(/\|/, $_);
chomp($Key);

$products{$key}={
price => $price,
description => $SDescription,
};

}

$blah = $products->{isi130}->{'price'};
print "$blah";





That does nothing. What am I doing wrong? I was a price and description for each key. Everytime I try to print one thing, it comes up blank.

Name "main::Price" used only once: possible typo at 20322330.perl line 9 (#1)
   
    (W once) Typographical errors often show up as unique variable names.
    If you had a good reason for having a unique name, then just mention
    it again somehow to suppress the message.  The our declaration is
    provided for this purpose.

Still nothing, just a blank page.

This is my script:

%products=();
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";

open(DB, "filedb.txt") or die $!;
@db = <DB>;
close(DB);

foreach ( @db ){
($SDescription,$Price,$Key) = split(/\|/, $_);
chomp($Key);

print "hi"; #Test to make sure it enters the foreach
$products{$Key}={
price => $Price,
description => $SDescription,
};

print "$products{$key}->{'price'}"; #test to see if it prints the prices..it doesn't

}

$blah = $products{isi130}->{'price'};
print "$blah"; #nothing here


This is filedb.txt:

Yep, you're right again! Changing it to $Key worked. One other thing, how did you get those error messages?
