in reply to Can't use string ("...") as an ARRAY ref while "strict refs" in use at x.pl line ...

Hmm, instead of $master{$keyed}=@temp;, did you not mean to write $master{$keyed}=\@temp;? As you've actually written it, a scalar is created as the value, instead of the array reference that you apparently meant.

A user level that continues to overstate my experience :-))
