Apart from the solution pointed to by tlm, note that you have an error in your code:
use strict; use warnings; my %big_hoh; while ( my $data = get_one_record(...) ) { my @key_list = get_arbitrary_length_key_list($data, ...); my $last_key = pop @key_list; my $storage_point = \%big_hoh; foreach my $key (@key_list) { if ( ! exists $storage_point->{$key} ) { $storage_point->{$key} = {}; $storage_point = $storage_point->{$key}; } } # Added to kick next line $storage_point->{$last_key} = $data; # out of the cycle }

perl -ple'$_=reverse' <<<ti.xittelop@oivalf

Don't fool yourself.

    Thanks, i wrote this simplified version based on a piece of my actual code. no one wants to see that, when it's done i hope to never have to touch it again. The real usage is encapsulating some really nasty stuff. :)
