in thread Why does testing for the existence of hash keys create the keys ?

No autovivification.

Huh?

18:58 >perl -w -Mstrict -MData::Dumper -E "my $foo; say Dumper($foo); +if (exists $foo->{bar}{anything}{you}{want} ) { say 'hi' } say Dumper +($foo);" $VAR1 = undef; $VAR1 = { 'bar' => { 'anything' => { 'you' => {} } } }; 19:00 >

Looks like 3 levels of autovivification to me.

???

      Oh, OK, I see it now. In the post by Anonymous Monk, “no autovivification” isn’t formatted as code, so I took it as a comment, didn’t realise it is part of the script! Sorry for the noise. (But, I’ve learned something useful. :-) )
