Yes indeed after looking at storable it looks as a much more suitable solution as the files only have to be used in Perl. However when looking at the function of storage it will store a Hash table into a file but it restores it into a scalar. I have been unable to get it back into a hash table.

my %stages; $stages{job_choice}->{status}->{val}=""; $stages{job_choice}->{param_gui}->{val}="job_choice_gui.pl"; $stages{input}->{status}->{val}=""; use Storable; store \%stages, 'stages.test'; my $hashref = retrieve('stages.test'); # not good : result is a scalar my %hashref1 = %{do retrieve('stages.test')}; # This does the job but +it reports an error message.

I have found the solution. They should actually add this to the storable documentation.

my %hashref = %{retrieve('stages.test')};
