in reply to return Both ARRAY and SCALAR

Instead of doing what you're doing, you could just store everything in an array. Then for fields you know have only one value, just do:
my ($field) = $parser->get_values();
Not perfect, but probably cleaner than the approach you're trying to take. (Whether it's useful or not will depend on exactly how you're using this data, which you haven't explained).

[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena my $ans = qx! find . -name "*.pl" -exec ls -l {} \\; !;
[Tanktalus]: My basic problem right now is that if I were willing to move, I could be back in Toronto with a pay raise. We have a number of reasons for not wanting to do that.
[marioroy]: I had to backslash the backslash inside qx.
[Tanktalus]: marioroy++ # nice catch
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, that makes kinda makes sense.
[Discipulus]: yes i can survive also in younger town.. but when i passed i saw many strange letters..
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, sorry, I am not making sense right now.
