Re^13: Storing/parsing perl data structure in/from a fileby LanX (Canon)

You didn't piss me off, it's just not easy to speculate about fictional use cases!
The tied hash doesn't work with nested literal hashes, they are cleaned at compile phase.
Though you can use nested literal arrays like demonstrated w/o information loss.
Assign them to a tied array, which STOREs them internally in a tied hash.
Or just a normal array which is parsed afterwards!
And yes YAML looks better! =)
