Taking tachyon's sample code:
use strict; use warnings; my %hash; my $a = '1};print "You have just been cracked!\n";#a1:a2:a3=foo'; my ($key, $val) = split /=/, $a, 2; $key =~ s/:/}{/g; eval "\$hash{$key}=\"$val\""; __END__ You have just been cracked!
You would replace the $key =~ s/:/... line with
use Data::Dumper; $Data::Dumper::Terse = 1; $Data::Dumper::Useqq = 1; $key = join '}{', Dumper split /:/, $key, -1;

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.
