in reply to varying length multi-dimensional hashes

I don't think this is the best way to do it, but it sure was fun to write:
my $eval; my %hash; # Find all three letter occurences, and combine them into one eval sta +tment. while (<>){ $eval = '$hash '; while (/(...)/g){ $eval .= "{'$1'}" } $eval .= "++;" eval ($eval); # You should probably do some error checking at this + point. } for (keys %hash){ hashValue ($hash{$_}); } # You got to love recursive functions ;) sub hashValue { my $hash = @_[0]; if (defined %$hash){ for (keys %$hash){ hashValue ($$hash{$_}); } } else { print $hash; # Or do whatever you like with the value } }
