in thread How to save and reload my hash

Hello dear Monks,

first thanks for you answers.

I first tried : (cos it's the shortest)

use Storable; # fill my hash store \%host_info, 'file'; %host_info = (); %host_info = %{retrieve('file')}; # print my hash

This worked. Don't know what I did yesterday, when I used

store \%host_info, 'file';

(probably not exactly that) It had a file with just

pst01234(and some unprintable chars).

Maybe I should not code until 6am.

Thank you all.

Have a nice day !

    The output that Storable produces is not meant to be human-readable. So it's probably true that whatever you were doing worked just fine. You just have to sort of trust (or test it) that when you read it back in using retrieve it'll come out ok.
