Hi,
In Perl when I do:

print($ssc);

Open in new window


I get the following:

HASH(0x1422640)

Open in new window


How can I get exactly what it writes there?

Thanks,

What exactly has this to do with Java?

You are right. Nothing related with Java. But maybe only related with hashmap knowledge in general.

I have a followup question on this issue:

In my PERL code the following line :

print Dumper $ssc->{'myStates'};

Open in new window


returns:

$VAR1 = [
          bless( {
                   'priority' => 'Unset',
                   'owner' => 'Unassigned',
                   'required' => 'ABCD',
                   'status' => 'Completed',
                 }, 'gState' )
        ];

Open in new window


How can I extract the 'status' from this output in Perl?

Thanks,

print $ssc->{myStates}[0]{status};

If you have more than one instance of gState, you'll need to loop over the items (or something similar) to get all of the status.
