Well here is another rather sick way to do it if you want to keep the funky data structure you got. Note: I am not saying this is better or faster, just ugly and sort of fun
sub OpenFF { my ($file,$dlmt) = @_; $dlmt = $_[1] || "\t"; my(%hash,%row); open(READ,$file) or return; my @headers = split /$dlmt/, <READ>; s/^\s+|\s+$//g for @headers; chomp(@row{@headers} = split /$dlmt/, <READ>) and %hash = map { $_=>{ $hash{$_} ? %{$hash{$_}} : (), $row{$heade +rs[0]}=>$row{$_}} } @headers while !eof(READ); return %hash; }

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.
