Hi exilepanda,

Only I thought that would be some build in perl func or syntactical trick can do the job. Seem there should be no simple direct way to do that now.

Well sure there is :-)

my $data = {}; while (<DATA>) { chomp; my @fields = split /\s*[=\.]\s*/; build( $data, \@fields, pop @fields ); } sub build { my ($ref, $path, $val) = @_; return $val unless @$path; my $el = shift @$path; if ($el=~/^\[(\d+)\]$/) { $ref->[$1] = build( $ref->[$1], $path, $val ) } else { $ref->{$el} = build( $ref->{$el}, $path, $val ) } return $ref; } __DATA__ object.prop.subprop.[0].name = foo object.prop.subprop.[1].name = bar obj.prop.[0] = blah obj.prop.[1] = 1000

$data then looks like so:

{ obj => { prop => ["blah", 1000] }, object => { prop => { subprop => [{ name => "foo" }, { name => "bar" + }] } }, }

And then to walk the data structure:

sub dive { my ($ref,@path) = @_; return $ref unless @path; my $el = shift @path; if ($el=~/^\[(\d+)\]$/) { return dive( $ref->[$1], @path ) } else { return dive( $ref->{$el}, @path ) } } print dive( $data, qw/ obj prop [0] / ), "\n"; # prints "blah" print dive( $data, qw/ object prop subprop [1] name / ), "\n"; # prints "bar"

Hope this helps,

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
