It's just about how you want/like/need your data:

#!/usr/bin/env perl + use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my $karl; $karl->{nose} = qq(cuke); $karl->{monk} = 1; $karl->{axes} = ["Strat", "Ibanez"]; $karl->{pets} = ["Dog", "Fishes"]; $karl->{skills} = ["C", "Perl", "Ecma", "NULL"]; print Dumper($karl); __END__ Karls-Mac-mini:monks karl$ ./ + $VAR1 = { + 'skills' => [ + 'C', + 'Perl', + 'Ecma', + 'NULL' + ], + 'pets' => [ + 'Dog', + 'Fishes' + ], + 'nose' => 'cuke', + 'monk' => 1, + 'axes' => [ + 'Strat', + 'Ibanez' + ] + };
