in reply to how to avoid mis-spelling hash keys?

There are a couple of other modules that perform related functionality, that is validating hash keys but also performing additional hash-access checks:
Provides key checking for references but provides functionality to ensure you don't unintentionally create a new key. Also controls clearing of the Hash.

Feedback: Strongly-typed "Pascal records" module
This was a module I just recently posted. It's purpose was to prevent exactly those types of finger-fault errors, but it goes farther in that it allows Perl to ensure you assign the type of data you intended to any particular Hash key. That catches errors such as assigning: $hash{product_list}=$a_product; When what you really meant was: $hash{product_list}=[$a_product];.

[Corion]: Hmmm. I feel a Meditation coming on. I wrote a module, DBIx::PivotQuery, which returns a table-like set of rows (AoA) but some columns are generated from column values, like in an (Excel) pivot table or a ROLLUP command
[Corion]: My current approach for subtotals involves rerunning the given query, with the hint to the user that they should use a temporary table if they want better performance.
[Corion]: But I could create that temporary table in the module and use it for the improved perfomance directly instead.
[Corion]: And the question is, what would be better/preferred ;-)
[Corion]: Hmm - not exactly like the ROLLUP command. Ah well.
