Now it works for more complex structures as well as long as they are wellformed.

use strict; use warnings; my $string = <<STRUCT; a = 0 mm struct a = 1 b = 3 m1 struct = c = 4 d = 5 m2 struct = f = 9 e = 7 m3 struct = h = 124 STRUCT my @lines = split /\n/, $string; my @levels; my $ind = 0; my $oldind; for( my $i=0; $i<@lines; ++$i ) { $oldind = $ind; $lines[$i] =~ /^(\s*)/; $ind = length( $1 ); push @levels, $ind if $i==0; $lines[$i] .= ";" if $lines[$i] =~ /\S+\s*=\s*\S+/; next if $i==0 or $ind == $oldind; if( $ind > $oldind ) { $lines[$i-1] .= " {"; push @levels, $ind; } elsif( $ind < $oldind ) { while( $levels[-1] > $ind ) { pop @levels; $lines[$i-1] .= "\n"." "x$levels[-1]."}"; } } } while( $levels[-1] > $levels[0] ) { pop @levels; $lines[-1] .= "\n"." "x$levels[-1]."}"; } print join "\n", @lines, "\n";
