There sure is more than one way to name your references.

    There sure is more than one way to name your references.

    $rsReally = \"yes really"; $raReally = [qw"yes really"]; $rhReally = {qw"yes really"};

      In Perl, the prefixes of sv, av, and hv might be more recognizable. Well, at least for people who have seen discussions that touched on internals that used the standard (and ubiquitous) abbreviations that are used internally.

      At least, I have sometimes used names like $sv_xml when I saw a value in calling out "this is a reference (of this type)" in the variable name.

      - tye        

        Maybe, though array-value/hash-value/scalar-value don't sound as good as array-ref/hash-ref/scalar-ref -- but definitely better than ref-array/ref-hash/ref-scalar
