in reply to reading the hash information from a file

I'm not exactly sure I understand your question, but if you've got a hash dumped to a file (from something like print Dumper( \%hash )) and you trust the file source, you could read it in to a string and eval it.

If you are using the file as a simplified database, you may want to consider DBM::Deep or Storable.
