in reply to map to hash of arrays

It is obviously possible, but it would not be "nifty". In fact, I think it'd be worse solution than just using a C<for> loop in the first place. You just have to build a temportary hash off to the side. But if you're going to build a tmp hash, then you might as well just build the real one.

Opinions my own; statements of fact may be in error.

    That's my issue. I want to build the real hash of arrays without the need of a temporary one. I'm just not sure how to go about doing that.
      Use a while loop, not a map:
      my %hash; my $key; while (<>) { /\S+ : (\S+)/ or die "unexpected line format: $_"; my $value = $1; if (defined $key) { push @{ $hash{$key} }, $value; undef $key; else { $key = $value; } }
      Opinions my own; statements of fact may be in error.
        Why would I want to use this over ccn's solution? Is it a matter of efficiency?
