NAME
Hash::Subset - Produce subset of a hash
VERSION
This document describes version 0.002 of Hash::Subset (from Perl
distribution Hash-Subset), released on 2019-07-10.
SYNOPSIS
use Hash::Subset qw(hash_subset hashref_subset);
# using keys specified in an array
my %subset = hash_subset ({a=>1, b=>2, c=>3}, ['b','c','d']); # => (b=>2, c=>3)
my $subset = hashref_subset({a=>1, b=>2, c=>3}, ['b','c','d']); # => {b=>2, c=>3}
# using keys specified in another hash
my %subset = hash_subset ({a=>1, b=>2, c=>3}, {b=>20, c=>30, d=>40}); # => (b=>2, c=>3)
my $subset = hashref_subset({a=>1, b=>2, c=>3}, {b=>20, c=>30, d=>40}); # => {b=>2, c=>3}
DESCRIPTION
FUNCTIONS
None exported by default.
hash_subset
Usage:
my %subset = hash_subset (\%hash, \@keys);
my $subset = hashref_subset(\%hash, \@keys);
my %subset = hash_subset (\%hash, \%another_hash);
my $subset = hashref_subset(\%hash, \%another_hash);
Produce subset of %hash, returning the subset hash (or hashref, in the
case of "hashref_subset" function).
Perl lets you produce a hashref using the slice notation:
my %subset = %hash{"b","c","d"};
The difference with this routine is: 1) hash slice is only available
since perl 5.20 (in previous versions, only array slices is available);
2) when the key does not exist in the array, perl will create it for you
with "undef" as the value, so:
my %hash = (a=>1, b=>2, c=>3);
my %subset = %hash{"b","c","d"}; # => (b=>2, c=>3, d=>undef)
So basically "hash_subset" is equivalent to:
my %subset = %hash{grep {exists $hash{$_}} "b","c","d"}; # => (b=>2, c=>3, d=>undef)
and available for perl earlier than 5.20.
