Here's what can be written without having touched perl for a long once time: a good bad example

@ipaddr = ("","","");

foreach $ipaddr(@ipaddr){
   $i = $i + 1;
   %myhost->{"$ipaddr"} = "Machine $i";

   $val = %myhost->{$ipaddr};
   print "IP $ipaddr has name $val\n";

I wish I could strike that, just to make sense at tyler_durden's post, otherwise I'd be glad to erase it.

A couple of mistakes in your script.

- Your hash initialization is incorrect, it should be a hash-list equivalence.

- Your hash keys are not the same as array elements.

Since this is Perl 101, I will not (by spoon-feeding you the solution) steal from you the joy of discovering things on your own.

After a few readings:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w

 use strict;
my @ipaddr = ("","","");
my $i = undef;
my %hosts = ();
my $val = undef;

foreach my $ip (@ipaddr){
   $hosts{$ip} = ("Machine $i" ) ;
   print "IP: $ip has name: $hosts{$ip}\n";

doesn't print errors any more

I hope this is going to be more helpfull.
