in reply to Single file oriented for different usage

Take a look at Config::Merge (my module) which loads configuration from a directory tree of files in any of several formats (XML, YAML, ini, Perl, Config::General), merging them together into a single hash.

It has a second phase, that of merging in local overrides - you can override single hash keys, single elements in arrays, or whole sub-trees within the config. The default setup merges in a file called local.$file_type at the point where it finds it in the directory tree. However, in the examples, I show how you could customise this process to load this data based on (eg) host name, or whatever else tickles your fancy

    Nice module, Clint. And it is documented in an exemplary way.
