in reply to Anonymous Hash in Constructor

Indeed, I prefer to define a local variable in my constructor, to use that to initialize the structure as need-be, bless it, and then return it.   It’s simply that particular author’s habit or perhaps meant in the name of editorial clarity.

The single most-important idea that “you really need to grok, and grok thoroughly,” is that all-important notion of what bless actually does.
