in reply to Combining / Merging two Ho(H|A)s

You didn't say what should happen when there are existing values in the two hashes, but their types are different. For example,

%h1 = ( foo => 1, ); %h2 = ( foo => { bar => 2, }, );
Do you have reason to believe this won't happen?

    Very very good point. It is possible. I'd say the first hash's value should be overwritten by the second one.
    GrandFather's code can be easily changed to check for REF differences and act accordingly.

      Right; but I would definitely look into Hash::Merge (Roy_Johnson's suggestion).
