in thread How to use __DATA__ efficiently, help!

but you're wrong in saying that __DATA__ can't be accessed twice

This is not what I said.  I said that you can only have one __DATA__ section (per package/file), not that you can only read it once.

The OP asked "how to use multiple sets of __DATA__", which I understood to mean something like this (also see the OP's sample code)

#!/usr/bin/perl while (<DATA>) { print } __DATA__ set 1 ... __DATA__ set 2 ...

which obviously acts as only one DATA section:

$ ./ set 1 ... __DATA__ set 2 ...
