in thread Reading "slices" out of a file at known start markers

Responding to my own question: I think I may have figured out an easier way:
use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dump qw(dump ddx);; use Config::General; my $conf = new Config::General("Makefile"); my %config = $conf->getall; print dump(\%config);

This puts each item as key/value pairs in the %config hash, which I can them print out and manipulate as $config{'SOURCES'} for example.

I guess the only thing I end up losing here, is the basic original formatting, but I can probably iterate through the hash and reconstruct that back somehow.

Anyone familiar with the innards of Config::General that can lend a hand so I can use it correctly?
