in thread variable in variables

Ok, that handles an initialization of the worksheet, but how do I do the worksheets writes outside of a for loop?
An adhoc write to another element?

As my example, How do I assign a "person" and then be able to do my write as my example showed?

    how do I do the worksheets writes outside of a for loop?
    Old:
    $NAME = "BOB"; $worksheet_$NAME->write('A2', "$NAME is here");
    New:
    $NAME = "BOB"; $worksheets{$NAME}->write('A2', "$NAME is here");

    BTW, as for why symbolic references should be avoided, see the classic three part series by MJD: part 1 and part 2 and part 3.

[Discipulus]: how I can tell in which perl version was included List::Util 1.29 ?
[Discipulus]: to specify use 5.0.x to be sure to have pairmap from the module..
[Corion]: Discipulus: I think Module::Corelist ( or corelist ) can tell you that
[Corion]: Meh - Module::CoreList
[choroba]: Just use List::Util 1.29
[choroba]: Be kind to people using old Perl with newer version of the module
[Corion]: But why not simply specify 'List::Util' => 1.29 in your prerequisites? People might install a more recent version of the module into their Perl
[Corion]: (what choroba said)
