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

This can also be accomplished without a regex at all, thanks to the split() function.

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my %hash; my $header; while (my $line = <DATA>) { chomp $line; my ($k, $v) = split ':', $line; next if ! $k; if (! $v) { $header = $k; next; } $hash{$header}{$k} = $v; } print Dumper \%hash; __DATA__ first: this:that here:there when:what how:where now:later second: this:that here:there when:what how:where now:later


$VAR1 = { 'second' => { 'now' => 'later', 'how' => 'where', 'here' => 'there', 'this' => 'that', 'when' => 'what' }, 'first' => { 'when' => 'what', 'how' => 'where', 'here' => 'there', 'this' => 'that', 'now' => 'later' } };

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.
