in thread reversed hash doesn't identify keys

reverse works on scalar strings as well!

$ perl -Mstrict -Mwarnings -E ' > my $word = q{Constantinople}; > my $drow = reverse $word; > say $drow;' elponitnatsnoC $

I hope this is of interest.

    I've been writing perl for a good while now, and I'm frequently surprised at what I don't know.


    When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.

    Thanks very much! I had one too many "reverse"s in there and it was reversing the reversed letters back...
