MLDBM || die;

 MLDBM || die;

For the past month I've been working with MLDBM, writing services for
my IRC network. I've been using hashes to store my data; but I've come
upon a problem...How do I change already initialized values? For


use MLDBM qw(DB_File Storable);

use Fcntl;

 tie( %hash, "MLDBM", "hash.db" ) || die "Could not open or create

$value = 123;

$hash{$value}->{value} = '123;

## change $hash{$value}{value} to newvalue

$hash{$value}->{value} = 'newvalue'; #doesn't work

$hash{$value} = {

'value' => 'newvalue'

}; #doesn't work

$refhash = \$hash{value};

$refhash = {

'value' => 'newvalue'


$hash{value} = \$refhash; ##doesn't work either

untie(%hash); #just for good measure

I have no clue what to do, and I'm getting frustrated to tears. Please
help me out with this problem.
