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

I'd do it like this:


[GENERAL] scheduledb=something [SERVICE] start2=stuff ${GENERAL/scheduledb=default} etcetera

The "getter":

sub x_val { my ($ini,$sect,$key,$def)=@_; # same signature as 'val' my $val=$ini->val($sect,$key,$def); my ($sect1,$key1,$def1,$t); while ($val=~/\$\{([^}]+)\}/) { $t=$1; ($sect1,$key1,$def1)=($t=~m|^([^/]+)/([^=]+)(?:=(.*))?$|); $val=$`.(x_val($ini,$sect1,$key1,$def1)).$'; } $val; }


  • It uses pre- and post-match variables, so it will slow you regexps
  • The syntax is a bit different from the one you show
  • It expands recursively
  • It supports in-line defaults
  • I haven't tested it...

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.
