...flies and honey...

I agree with this. There are times when those of us who are other than full time developers simply face a problem which is hard to express.
Part of the help one needs might be to actually formulate the question.

There are certainly folks who come here, drop a 'please provide me with a solution', and seem to expect others to work for them. Based on my reading over the past several months, the ratio of actual 'abusers' to said response is far too small. I have on occasion responded by saying 'make some effort' as well. I hope not often... . The tone of some similar responses has been (to my way of thinking) arrogant and just plain pointlessly unfriendly.

I am reminded of the scene in RoadHouse where the new lead bouncer tells his team members to "..ask them to leave, but be nice, show them the door, but be nice...".

...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...

[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.
[Lady_Aleena]: Well, HoH and AoH respectively.
[Lady_Aleena]: But if you want to play, play. I don't mind. 8)
