( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

If I understand your problem correctly, this is how I'd do it (without all that mucking around with /s and /m and paragraphs)

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; # use warnings; my %hash; my $current; while( <DATA> ) { if( /(\w+):\n/ ) { $hash{$1} = $current = {}; } elsif( /(\w+):(\w+)/ ) { $current->{$1} = $2; } } use Data::Dump 'dd'; dd \%hash; __DATA__ first: this:that here:there when:what how:where now:later name:onlyfirst second: this:that here:there when:what how:where now:later name:onlysecond


{ first => { here => "there", how => "where", name => "onlyfirst", now => "later", this => "that", when => "what", }, second => { here => "there", how => "where", name => "onlysecond", now => "later", this => "that", when => "what", }, }

Is that the hash-of-hashes you are looking for?
