Ah i use Dumper all the time, i just didn't think of it in this case! Thanks! So if i was to "hard code" this complex data structure. Would i have to write it the first way with a separate "other_hash" declaration? Or can i write it somehow similarly to the second way? (The first one is what i want).

    No, just say key2 => { ... }, ie use braces instead of parentheses.

    perldsc is your friend, look at HASHES OF HASHES.

      Of Course! Doh!

      Thanks so much!
