YAML rocks my world .. but watch out for the indentation .. muck it up and data will mysteriously disappear. Thanks Ingy!

    yaml is neat, but the std module seems quite slow reading/writing?
      Use YAML::Syck then.

      use Best [[ qw/ YAML::Syck YAML / ], [qw/Load Dump/]; print Dump($complex_thingie);

      Not only slow but buggy as well.

[LanX]: moritz, no ... jsut copy one line of my code
[moritz]: I'm still using the CB, because ambrus's #cbstream makes it bearable
[LanX]: ... the rest is loaded from a node
[holli]: the best course of action would be to transfer the data to something well tested. even if it isnt perl based
[moritz]: but even if I had all the time in the world, I wouldn't spend much on perlmonks
[LanX]: holli: LOL
[LanX]: moritz: why ? family?
[LanX]: or other language?
[moritz]: LanX because of usability issues, and the lack of evolvement
[holli]: lol to the robust charme or to the data transfer?
