Indeed I am also considering something similar to this, although I'm not entirely sure if it would work quite as I hope.

The data is constructed like so:

%hash{Keyword} -> {Symbol_1} = Weighting %hash{Keyword} -> {Symbol_2} = Weighting
And so on. I think perhaps I could slim down memory considerably by doing something like the following:
%hash{Keyword} = "Symbol_1 | Weighting, Symbol_2 | Weighting"
And, as Mr_Person has already noted, no I don't intend to use | and , as separators. Already when writing data to the disk as a "brainsave" I use \x255 as a record separator, just like you were thinking. Perhaps the fact that I started programming in BASIC as well might have something to do with our shared mindset? :)

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