in thread How to create a compact data structure?

I don't know about 'reliable' but 'how' should work like this:
use Devel::Size qw(total_size); # code by perrin my $size_rec_hash = total_size(\%record); my $size_flag_hash = total_size(\%flag); print "Total size: $size_rec_hash + $size_flag_hash =", $size_rec_hash + $size_flag_hash, "\n";
Update: I missed the point, please ignore.

    You are totally ignoring the fact that these hashes have many keys in common, as every single key in %flag is also a key in %record. And that was precisely the point I was asking about.
