in reply to Manually adding delimiters instead of join()

If you are set on using :: as your separator, you would have to escape them like any other special characters. You could do something like this:

$users{$username}"$password\:\:$name\:\:$email\:\:$website\:\:$start";

    Alternately, since you only need to break up the :: variable interpolation
    $users{$username} = "$password\::$name\::$email\::$website\::$start";
    or even (although this isn't any better than join-not that there is anything wrong with join)
    $password.'::'.$name.'::'.$email.'::'.$website.'::'.$start

[Lady_Aleena]: And you see how the first two are vastly different than the third, right?
[james28909]: it would be to much work just to get around renaming three subs lol
[james28909]: but you could put it all in one sub and return the same data type that was inputted. i could write a small example maybe
[Lady_Aleena]: Their uses are also vastly different.
[Lady_Aleena]: The first two make hashes and arrays from a file, the third returns data from a pre-existing hash.
