You could get the results desired, if you delay their evaluation, and use slightly strange-looking syntax :
my %h; %hash = ( 1 => { ONE => 'testdir', TWO => 'tmpdir' }, 2 => { LOCATIONA => sub{ qq($hash{1}{ONE}/$hash{1}{TWO}/my_f +ile.txt)}, # Note - wrapped in "sub" LOCATIONB => sub{qq($hash{1}{TWO}/$hash{1}{ONE}/my_fi +le.txt)} } ); print $hash{2}{LOCATIONA}(),qq( = location a\n); #When called like a sub call, produces: # testdir/tmpdir/my_file.txt = location a
For complete consistency, you would probably wrap the values corresponding to ONE and TWO in sub's as well.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
