in reply to How to better represent a complex data structure.

my %main_file=( USER <= \@user_file, TEST <= \@test_file, TRIM <= \@trim_file, );

Obviously you mean => there ;)

Like this?
push(@{$main_file{"USER"}[0]}, $string);

Have you tried it? Did it fail you?

> perl -Mstrict -MData::Dumper -wE ' my %main_file = ( USER => [ [], [], [] ] ); push @{$main_file{"USER"}[0]}, "string ;)"; print Dumper \%main_file; ' $VAR1 = { 'USER' => [ [ 'string ;)' ], [], [] ] }; >

    I have tried it roughly, but the mess of code i wrote quickly grew out of hand so i wrote the above to try to simplify it in my head and to simplify the question!

    Thanks for you reply.
