in thread To Hash or to Array--Uniqueness is the question.

I agree that if $. isn't available you have to use a separate variable, which is hardly a big issue. But my criticism of tying was more a question of avoiding over-engineering than anything else. In addition, non-core modules are effectively prohibited for all the large corporate production environments I've ever worked in. Why 'effectively' rather than explicitly is another tale.

    I'd like to hear it.

    Ouch, thats got to suck, not being able to use non-core modules. I definitely understand where you're coming from about not just reaching for some module to do the work for you. I used to be very much against using whatever module, but i think that i've become much more for not re-inventing the wheel. I must say i had to be in a strange mood when i wrote my original response to you, I used to get pretty annoyed when someone would write 'use such and such module' in response to a complex question.

    I use the most powerful debugger available: print!
