in reply to Tied hashes: multiple parameters to STORE()?

I agree with perrin. The goal of tying is to provide the syntax of the variable to an object. It doesn't allow the creation of new syntaxes.

Besides, the desired syntax ($hash{$key} = @array;) already has a very clear meaning: store the length of the array in the hash at the specified key.
