in reply to Re^3: random behaviour of perl hashes
in thread random behaviour of perl hashes

According to "perlrun":

The default behaviour is to randomise unless the PERL_HASH_SEED is set. If Perl has been compiled with "-DUSE_HASH_SEED_EXPLICIT", the default behaviour is not to randomise unless the PERL_HASH_SEED is set.

perhaps ActiveState Perl is compiled with -DUSE_HASH_SEED_EXPLICIT ?

perl -V
might tell you whether that is the case.

    perl -v returns (among many other data):

    -GF -W3 -MD -Zi
    -DNDEBUG -O1 -DWIN32
    -D_CONSOLE -DNO_STRICT -DHAVE_DES_FCRYPT
    -DNO_HASH_SEED
    -DUSE_SITECUSTOMIZE -DPERL_IMPLICIT_CONTEXT
    -DPERL_IMPLICIT_SYS -DUSE_PERLIO -DPERL_MSVCRT_READFIX

    It would seem not, unless -DNO_HASH_SEED has a similar effect.
