Re: XML Bare Hash Reference.

in reply to XML Bare Hash Reference.

Please check out the discussion in the Hash statement problem. thread. The basic problem is still that the  %$hash_reference syntax (and I think also the  @$array_reference syntax) simply doesn't work (Update: within a hash/array slice expression as shown in the OP – thanks, choroba) from version 5.10.x (where x == 0, I think) onward.

Wherever you find if, you will have to change this syntax as has been noted elsewhere in this and the previous thread – or else get the maintainer(s) of the module(s) in question to change it, which is probably more trouble than just changing it yourself!

    %$hash_ref and @$array_ref still work. It is @{%$hash_ref}{1,2} which does not work anymore, as it never should have worked. %$hash_ref is evaluated to a string like "1/8" which tells you how the hash uses its buckets. Then, @{"1/8"}{1,2} tries to interpret the string as a hash reference and fails. Without strict refs, you can create a hash called "1/8": ${"1/8"}{1} = "q"; print @{"1/8"}{1};

[Corion]: No. It's just that I'm comparing the same output file twice, instead of comparing the output files of the two runs %-)
[Corion]: Lo and behold, running a program with the correct input files yields the correct (and expected) output. Yay me.
[1nickt]: Got a MacBook and am expected to develop directly on it, ironic given the recent thread about that.
[marto]: Corion, some not too serious issues with the kids, hopefully, other than that just dealing with commuting by car again in the winter, not much fun so far, and there's no real 'bad' weather yet :)
[marto]: 1nickt, glad to hear it, I'm sure you'll bring improvements to their stack in due course ;)
[1nickt]: Just trying to adjust to a new culture. Better doc than I am used to , but quite a bit more Agiley meta-bullshit; at least half a dozen meetings a week, strict "sprint" schedule etc. I'll adjust. And I hope to just switch off after the "scrum" each day at
[1nickt]: ... the end of the afternoon. marto How are you, snowed in? Mum and Dad expecting snow today in Surrey. (Have 5" on the ground here in NJ. And my son's high school in SOCal closed until after Xmas due to fires.)
[Corion]: 1nickt: In a sense the meta-bullshit might even be beneficial to you as you get to hear the cow-orkers talk (or not talk) about the issues you perceive. I think Agile is mostly about the meta ;)
[Corion]: 1nickt: On Sunday maybe 10cm of snow fell, and the airport closed, and the trains stopped running etc :) It always comes as a surprise that snow falls here during the winter...
[marto]: 1nickt, no snow, just some ice on the roads and the usual idiocy associated with humans and driving in less than ideal conditions
