The code posted by muba is working correctly. I don't know what is the problem with your code. You can use his.

    thanks for pointing that out, i think i know now where the problem is

    i was using a simplified code snippet to highlight the top-level key deletion question, the actual code is a bit more complicated, the variable that holds the top-level key is the result of a regular expression match, and i yet again underestimated the greediness of the .* construct

    thanks again for pointing out the useful of "warnings" & "diagnostics" pragmas, and your help on the usage of the "delete" function in the HoH context, thank you all
