thank you for the snippet, I really appreciate it.
I found the need of handling arrays too: append them if found.
to combine {a:[1,2]} and {a:[3,4]} into {a:[1,2,3,4]} I had to edit the while loop in the middle:
   while (my ($k,$v) = each %merged) {                                                      
     my @hashes = grep { ref $_ eq 'HASH' } @$v;
     #$merged{$k} = $v->[0] if (@$v == 1 && !ref $v->[0]);

     # append text separated with \n\n, but do not duplicate identical values
     $merged{$k} = join "\n\n", do { my %seen; grep {!$seen{$_}++} @$v} if (!ref $v->[0]);

     # append arrays one to other
     @{$merged{$k}} = map {@$_} @$v if (ref $v->[0] eq 'ARRAY');

     $merged{$k}  = mergehashes(@hashes) if @hashes;
I thought someone else will find this useful too.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
