build hash of hashes of hashes ...

I have a file:

PWXX002110        au00208      NULL      Pending      20040618      20040618

I need to build a hash containing counts for each uuName, for each group of
packages (where $pkgGroup = substr($pkgName, 0, 4)) for each status, ie.
$pkgCounts{'ve00208'}{'PWCT'}{'Closed'} should return 2
$pkgCounts{au00208}{'PWXX'}{'Pending'} should return 1 ...

This is done in a subroutine. $pkgCounts  is then returned to main for referencing

Here's a script for you. It reads its input from the __DATA__ section. Its output looks like this:


$VAR1 = {
          'au00208' => {
                         'PWCT' => {
                                     'Closed' => 2
                                   },
                         'PWJR' => {
                                     'Closed' => 2
                                   },
                         'PWXX' => {
                                     'Pending' => 1,
                                     'Closed' => 2
                                   }
                       },
          've00208' => {
                         'PWCT' => {
                                     'Closed' => 4
                                   },
                         'PWJR' => {
                                     'Closed' => 4
                                   },
                         'PWXX' => {
                                     'Pending' => 1,
                                     'Closed' => 4
                                   }
                       }
        };




    #!/usr/bin/perl
    use Data::Dumper;

    $r = parse_file();

    print Dumper($r);


    sub parse_file {
        my %pkgCounts = ();

        ## skip first two lines;
        <DATA>, <DATA>;

        while(<DATA>) {

            my ($pkgName, $uuName, $tid, $status) = split ;
            $pkgCounts{$uuName}{substr($pkgName,0,4)}{$status}++;
