in thread Printing a hash in a specific order?
Thank you very much! I have to look under the hood of this module as I think I have two problems that may make using it a little less than straight forward.
The object may change over time so I would know how to order keys that haven't been created yet.
If it is truly forcing the order and not performing some other kind of magic, than it is going to hurt performance.
In reference to point one, I could always just create a place holder for all possible keys, but I am not sure I want to do that since some parameters can exist with empty string as the value and I do not want to accidently create a parameter in a record that didn't previously exist. As far as point two. I have about 150,000 records in in the database - I wouldn't mind adding some overhead for ease of use as long as it doesn't add an extra hour to processing time.
Thanks again - I will definately check out this module.
Cheers - L~R
