in reply to What is %_

Well, I'm not totally sure what sets %_ myself, but I have found out that you can use %_.
Just don't 'my' it:
&mySub(); sub mySub{ my %Defaults = (Name => 'Russ', Job => 'Programmer', Language => 'Perl'); local %_ = (%Defaults, @_); # Warning, this does not compile! ### #(Now use %_ as my argument list) ### print "The name is: $_{Name}\n"; }
That works perfectly fine. It would be intersting to see if there is an internal perl action/method/function that will actually set %_, like it does with $_ and @_;

Any takers?
