in reply to Building a hash of employees.

Since this is a prototype you're probably fine using a simple hash, but archon's suggestion to use a DBM or database is good advice if the project begins to expand. I think I'd be inclined to keep the variable length entries (i.e., skills) in an array though. It'll be cleaner to iterate over an array than to ensure properly formatted strings to split on commas upon retrieval.
