OK, you got some solutions for getting this to work but please note that your approach just isn't a good idea in the first place (sorry).
YOu currently populate the hash by actually typing stuff into a file that you then save as a perl module. However, it can very easily be generated by the code using loops as I mentioned earlier in the other thread you are refering to. It sort of defeats the purpose of scripting if you then end up typing all the combinations of categories and sub-categories by hand into a file (i.e. hardcoding them).
Do yourself a favour and have a go at using loops to let the code generate all these tedious combinations of things and you will begin to see "The Light"(Tm) :-)
Good luck!

Title:
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.
