in thread varying length multi-dimensional hashes

I voted this one down because

  • it's an unnecessary use of runtime-string-compilation eval
  • it breaks on general data, so it's not a good general pattern, and you didn't add that disclaimer to your text. Hint: what if your data contained single quotes?
Others have posted faster and more general solutions, so I won't include one of mine here. But avoid this eval solution, please.
