I find that many people do something like:

$var->{key1}->{key2}->{key3}

when the following should suffice:

$var->{key1}{key2}{key3}

    Iím one of those people, and Iím not entirely sure why I do it. Iím fully aware that the later arrows are optional. The one arrow notation feels a bit asymmetric, and it doesnít show that they all are refs in there, I guess.

    I usually write ${${$$var{key1}}{key2}}{key3}, or, very rarely $$var{key1}{$key2}{$key3} or an intermediate variant. I never use arrow dereferencing.

      Those are particularly unusual ways of doing it. But hey, TIMTOWTDI.
