how can i check that both key/value pairs in a hash:
my %hash = {'TEST'=>'T,'QUIZ'=>'1','HWORK'=>'3'};

are in the following element:
      my @table = ( {'TEST'=>'T'}, {'TEST'=>'F'},{'QUIZ'=>'1'},{'QUIZ'=> '2'},{'HWORK'=>'3'}, {'HWORK'=>'3'});

if they're not then i'd like to delete them by making a copy of the original hash. For example:
my %hash = {'TEST'=>'T,'QUIZ'=>'4','HWORK'=>'3'}; and since 'QUIZ'=>'4' is not in @table then I would have my %hash or a copy of my %hash =  {'TEST'=>'T,,'HWORK'=>'3'};


example:

Is there a reason that you are not using
 my %table = (TEST=>{T=>1,F=>1},QUIZ=>{1=>1,2=>1},HWORK=>{3=>1,4=>1});

my %table;
for( @table ){
  my($k,$v);
  ++$table{$k}{$v} while ($k,$v) = each %$_;
}
delete @hash{grep!$table{$_}{$hash{$_}},keys%hash};

Check my script below:
(This deletes elements from the hash and the original hash is modified to the desired hash)

Thanks,
Vikas.
#!/usr/bin/perl

 

my %my_hash = ('TEST' =>'T' ,'QUIZ'=>'4','HWORK'=>'3');

my @table = ( {'TEST'=>'T'}, {'TEST'=>'F'},{'QUIZ'=>'1'},{'QUIZ'=> '2'},{'HWORK'=>'3'}, {'HWORK'=>'3'});

 

for my $value (keys %my_hash)

{

        my $found = 0;

        foreach $i (0 .. @table-1)

        {

                if ( $table[$i]{$value} == $my_hash{$value} ) {

                        $found = 1;

                }

        }

        if ( ! $found )

        {

                delete($my_hash{$value});

        }

}
