Error Compare values of hashes of hash for n number of hash in perl without sorting.


I have an hashes of hash, where hash is dynamic, it can be n number of hash. i need to compare data_count values of all .
my %result (
		$abc => {
				 'data_count' => '10',
				 'ID'		  => 'ABC122',
		$def => {
				 'data_count' => '20',
				 'ID'		  => 'defASe',
		$n	=> {
				 'data_count' => '20',
				 'ID'		  => 'nsnsn',

I need to compare the data_count of each hashes of hash, i need to get greater data_count and ID and also lesser( minimum ) data_count and ID.

how to compare the hash values without sorting using perl.

Usually hash is just a random storage partial key, so it feels like we need the outer code and app to understand the problem. Is this like a top 10 scoring problem?
