I have looked around more and found

This seemed to do the trick with a bit of modification to my code. However now an error 22 is output, which means that the values I am storing under keys is too large. I suppose it is worth mentioning that I my data is "wide" in the sense that each key will have 1000 or so values that I hoped to store on the array.

use MLDBM; # this gets SDBM and Data::Dumper use Fcntl; # to get them constants my $dbm; my %hash; unlink ('testmldb.dir'); unlink ('testmldb.pag'); $dbm = tie %hash, 'MLDBM', 'testmldbm', O_CREAT|O_RDWR, 0640 or di +e $!; while($html =~ m/example(key)regex(value)example/ig ) { my $tempArray = $hash{$key}; push( @{ $tempArray } , $value); $hash{$domain} = $tempArray; undef $tempArray; #Just for fun-zies }

MLDBM docs do say something about berkleyDB not having this limit, because of how it stores the values. (MLDBM apparently uses joined strings as my array instead of a real array) I will look into the berklyDB approach... I was hoping to avoid using a db and just a file, because I might as well just dump it into a temporary table in my database (which the program also uses) I would just like to take advantage of perls amazing hashes if I could.
