in thread Hash of hashes syntax

Good eye, but this actually isn't a problem in this case. Because of the my %h inside of the loop, %h is a different (and new) lexical through each iteration -- thus there is no problem just sticking a reference to it into the hash or array. The problem comes from code like this (nearly directly copied from perldsc):

my %hash; for $i (1..10) { %hash = somefunc($i); $hash_of_hashes{$rn} = \%hash; # WRONG! }

Note where the "my" is. See perldsc or perlreftut or perllol for more.

perl -pe '"I lo*`+$^X$\"$]!$/"=~m%(.*)%s;$_=$1;y^`+*^e v^#$&V"+@( NO CARRIER'
