in reply to Relative Merits of References

Since almost all hashes and arrays I make end up getting passed to subroutines, I usually just create them as refs. This has the (slight) benefit having a consistent point of dereference in mainline code and subroutine code instead of having to remember to move the arrow around. Also foo($this) looks nicer that foo(\%that).


#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; my %rgbs = ( yellow => { r => 0xff, b => 0, g => 0xff, }, magenta => { r => 0xff, b => 0xff, g => 0, }, ); print "$rgbs{yellow}->{r}\n"; foo(\%rgbs); sub foo { my $rgbs = shift; print "$rgbs->{yellow}{r}\n"; }

[Corion]: Yay! As I had to reset my phone again, I now also back up my SMS automatically. Highly conveniently, there is a program to back up my SMS to my IMAP server as mails ;)
[1nickt]: Corion this is an android phone? If so, are you encountering problems with recent upgrades? Lately my phone dies suddenly quite often, seemingly coredumps caused by interaction of two actions, eg phone playing a sound and user swiping simultaneously :-/
[Corion]: 1nickt: Yeah, it's Android, but it's CM 11, so fairly old. I'm looking for a newer (china) phone, but I think I'll wait until Oreo ROMs get out for them
[Corion]: Otherwise, the Vernee Mars looks tempting
[Corion]: ... but alas, no Oreo support in sight yet, and I prefer to flash a stock Android over the custom ROMs, and Oreo promises to make the userland more maintainable.
[LanX]: Corion: shouldn't pmdev have permission to view code of nodelets?
[1nickt]: And of course everything is "unlocked" in EU, right?
[1nickt]: I think there are far more choices than in the US
LanX You don't have access to  Function Nodelet.
