Yep. This is going to be a stupid question but how do i retrieve/print the value for, say, key "a"?

    $key2value is a hash reference, you retrieve the value for a this way: $key2value->{a}

    see perldata for more info.

      I had tried that at first and it does print the value, but it also prints: Use of uninitialized value $key2value{"a"} in concatenation (.) or string for each "settings" element in the xml.

        $key2value{"a"} and $key2value->{"a"} are two different and absolutely unrelated things. The first attempts to get the value of the key "a" in hash %key2value, the other in the hash referenced by the scalar variable $key2value. Two different variables, no surprise that you do not find anything in one after you wrote to the other.

    mirod used a key called "key", if you want a key called "a", maybe you should replace "key" with "a" or something like that, I haven't read perlintro so I'm not sure
