in reply to Referencing to a hash inside a hash of hashes.

this may make it a little clearer

#!d:\perl\perl my %hash; my %direc; my $record = { DIR => 3 }; $hash{'myhash'} = $record; print $hash{'myhash'},"\n"; ## Prints HASH(0x1b9f0b8) print $hash{'myhash'}{DIR},"\n"; ## Prints 3 $direc{'this'} = "something"; $direc{'that'} = "another"; #Here we swat the previous value of $hash{'myhash'} #the previous value of $hash{myhash} ($record) vanishes $hash{'myhash'}{DIR} = \%direc; print $hash{'myhash'}->{DIR}{'this'},"\n"; ## Prints something print $hash{'myhash'}{DIR}{'this'},"\n"; ## Prints something print $hash{'myhash'}->{DIR}{'that'},"\n"; ## Prints another print $hash{'myhash'},"\n"; ## Prints HASH(0x1b9f0b8) print $hash{'myhash'}{DIR},"\n"; ## Prints HASH(0x1b95778)
The point about the quotes is that double quotes interpolate variable into their contents before passing them on. Single quotes don't.
