in thread Is it possible to create a single Hash-of-Hash.. with multiple threads..

  1. No.

    You can replace:

    if( exists $copyRef->{ $step } ) { $copyRef = $copyRef->{ $step }; } else { lock %{ $copyRef }; $copyRef = $copyRef->{ $step } = &share( {} ); }

    With:

    lock %{ $copyRef }; $copyRef = $copyRef->{ $step } //= &share( {} )

    Which is more compact, but not easier nor more efficient.

  2. Yes.

    Two possibilities:

    1. You can build a normal (non-shared) subhash and when complete, use threads::shared::shared_clone() to make a shared copy of it and assign a reference to the copy to a key/value pair in the main shared hash:
      ... my %subhash; ... # populate it lock %mainSharedHash; $mainSharedHash{ $key } = shared_clone( \%subhash ); ...
    2. You can create a shared subhash and assign a ref to it without needing to copy:
      ... my %subhash :shared: ... # populate it lock %mainSharedHash; $mainSharedHash{ $key } = \%subhash;
  3. I do not understand the question.

    You'll get better answers if you describe your actual application. Ie. Real requirements garner working responses.

  4. Again, your question makes no sense.

    In a subroutine (or anywhere else), you can use unshared variables and/or shared variables as required.
