in reply to Complex Data Structure Suggestions Wanted

You don't have to check for existence. You can just use an undefined value as an arrayref and it will autovivify:
foreach my $ItemID (@Data){ push @{$$HashRef{$ItemID}}, $DataSource; # The usual preferred notation is # push @{$HashRef->{$ItemID}}, $DataSource; }

    Thank you, I prefer the preferred notation nice to agree with the masses for a change.
