in reply to Adding to hash of hashes

but then I want to add an end => 10 to the same anonymous hash without replacing what's already there

use warnings; use strict; use Data::Dumper; my %hoh; $hoh{element1} = {start => 1, middle => 5}; print Dumper \%hoh; $hoh{element1}{end}=10; # add to hash print Dumper \%hoh;
OUTPUT:
$VAR1 = { 'element1' => { 'middle' => 5, 'end' => 10, 'start' => 1 } };
For more information, please check the following: perldsc, perlref, perllol, perldata, perlobj

    Thanks, 2teez, that's exactly what I was looking for - I think I tried something similar but must have got the syntax wrong somewhere
