in reply to Combining / Merging two Ho(H|A)s

There's nothing like the brute force method
foreach my $key2 (keys %hash2) { $hash1{$key2} = $hash2{$key2}; }
Code untested and probably not has elegant as it could be.

    Brute it is. Perhaps I didn't specify that well enough - in this case the nested hashes overwrite eachother instead of merging. This is not what I intend.
    Thanks for your reply, though.
