( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

If I understand your problem correctly, this is how I'd do it (without all that mucking around with /s and /m and paragraphs)

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; # use warnings; my %hash; my $current; while( <DATA> ) { if( /(\w+):\n/ ) { $hash{$1} = $current = {}; } elsif( /(\w+):(\w+)/ ) { $current->{$1} = $2; } } use Data::Dump 'dd'; dd \%hash; __DATA__ first: this:that here:there when:what how:where now:later name:onlyfirst second: this:that here:there when:what how:where now:later name:onlysecond


{ first => { here => "there", how => "where", name => "onlyfirst", now => "later", this => "that", when => "what", }, second => { here => "there", how => "where", name => "onlysecond", now => "later", this => "that", when => "what", }, }

Is that the hash-of-hashes you are looking for?

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.
