Re: HTML::Template Accessing Params and Reassigning
in thread HTML::Template Accessing Params and Reassigning
HTML::Template's param method is returning a scalar reference, so by assigning the return value to an array, you end up with a single element array. That element being the array reference.
Thanks Snoop! That was it... for some reason I was thinking that by assigning it to an array it would dereference it. But, looking at it again this morning I am not sure where my mind was :)
