in reply to variable as hash name

It can be done using eval even with strict:

14:36 >perl -Mstrict -MData::Dump -wE "my $variable = 'name01'; eval q +q[our %{$variable} = ( valorC => 'value03', valorD => 'value04', );]; + eval qq[our %{$variable}; dd %{$variable},;];" ("valorD", "value04", "valorC", "value03") 14:36 >

Why you’d want to do it is, of course, another question altogether...

Hope that helps,

    To count the number of times each element is present. But keep in mind each two consecutive elements of a line will be in a 'group' different than the others.

    And I can not know at first how many groups there will be.
