in reply to Serialization and eval in YAML

use Data::Dumper;
@arg2 = [{a => 1, b =>2}], [qw($balloon)];


'$balloon = {
             \'a\' => 1,
             \'b\' => 2

Really? Using no version of Perl that I've ever used.

use warnings; use Data::Dumper; @arg2 = [{a => 1, b =>2}], [qw($balloon)]; print Data::Dumper->Dump(@arg2)
Useless use of anonymous list ([]) in void context at line 3.
$VAR1 = [
            'a' => 1,
            'b' => 2

Precedence problem. You need parenthesis around the array. And lose the sigil on $balloon.

Update: removed some unnecessarily snarky commentary.
