SYNOPSIS

  use Math::HashSum qw(hashsum);
  
  my %hash1 = (a=>.1, b=>.4); 
  my %hash2 = (a=>.2, b=>.5);
  my %sum = hashsum(%hash1,%hash2);
  
  print "$sum{a}\n"; # Prints .3

DESCRIPTION

This module allows you to sum a list of key-value pairs on a per-key basis. It adds up all the values associated with each key in the given list and returns a hash containing the sum associated with each key.
