That I don't know. Maybe you just open a file handle to the whole file and Data::General 
figures it out. Honestly though, I wouldn't use __DATA__ blocks for config. Instead, I'd 
use something like JSON or YAML for config files. It's taint safe, human readable, fast 
parsing, supports unlimited nesting and data structures. It's just good all the way
