Thanks for posting your sample code. Much clearer now!

In fact, it spookily reminded me of a node I wrote a while back: Data-driven Programming: fun with Perl, JSON, YAML, XML...

As you can see from that node, I faced a similar problem to what you are asking about.

Generally, I'm a fan of defining a table of properties, as you have done, because it helps to separate the code from the data. After asking my question, I ended up leaving the script alone with its table of properties hard-wired in the script. It was very flexible that way and proved to be easy to maintain over many years. Having the build script itself under version control was essential, of course, to allow us to examine changes to our automated builds over time.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
