in reply to looking Generic File Parser script?

As noted you want a recursive descent parser like Parse::RecDescent. A parser needs a grammar. Fortunately the Inline:: modules all use PRD to parse the language code so you have a good start on a C grammar in Inline::C::ParseRecDescent and a C++ grammar in Inline::CPP::Grammar

You do not want to generate a HASH as this is unordered, whereas code is definitively ordered. You want what PRD gives you which is an array of array refs to whatever depth. You may find the thread Parse:RecDescent grammar help useful.
