Amoe has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have a complicated data structure (AoH, to be precise) that is dumped and loaded, via eval and Data::Dumper Now the loaded file has to be updated as it is processed, removing hashrefs already processed. I know how to modify the structure, but the way I can think of of updating the file (by clobbering and overwriting the old file with the new file) seems rather inelegant. My question, oh berobed ones: In the spirit of Tim Toady, is there another way to do it? I don't have any code yet, as I felt that writing any might be redundant at the moment.
my one true love
