in thread Parse a file and store it in hash of hashes

$key       => { map { split m{\s*=\s*} } @record }

Try that with values containing "=". Like this:

[CELL_NAME1] COMMENT = "Perl parsing = oh no" FIRST = "TEST1" SECOND = "ID1" THIRD = 123 FOURTH = "THREE" FIFTH = 12345 SIXTH = 6789 SEVENTH = QWERTY [CELL_NAME2] COMMENT = "Tester" FIRST = "TEST2" SECOND = "ID2" THIRD = 1234 FOURTH = "FOUR = bad" FIFTH = 12345 SIXTH = BOARD SEVENTH = MOUSE [CELL_NAME3] COMMENT = "Parser" FIRST = "TEST3" SECOND = "ID3 = and how = did this = happen?" THIRD = 12345 FOURTH = "FIVE" FIFTH = 12345 SIXTH = PAD SEVENTH = KEY EOF

Did you expect that?

Hint: split accepts THREE arguments.
