Thanks, I was trying to come up with some shortcuts and was failing miserably and the awnsers I got here reminded me I could do the following, this is the actual code.
my %data = ( DATA => { DIR => "/prod" }, LOGS => { DIR => "/prod/logs" }, SITE1 => { DIR => "/prod/data1", FILE => "/prod/data1/LSTD.DAT" }, SITE2 => { DIR => "/prod/data2", FILE => "/prod/data2/LSTD.DAT" }, LOG1 => { FILE => "/prod/logs/stdaudit01_3 +289.log_1" }, LOG2 => { FILE => "/prod/logs/stdaudit02_8 +750.log_1" } ); # assign $data{$_}{'COPY_D'} and $data{$_}{'COPY_F'} Where needed for ( keys (%data) ) { if ( $data{$_}{'DIR'} ) { $data{$_}{'COPY_D'} = join '', $ARCHIVE +_DIR, $data{$_}{'DIR'} } if ( $data{$_}{'FILE'} ) { $data{$_}{'COPY_F'} = join '', $ARCHIVE +_DIR, $data{$_}{'FILE'} } }

I just needed to provide an interface to do some copying once a flashcopy is made of a disk...
