greengaroo:

Odd, I find your examples a good case for using the second one. Again, different people will find different things more clear.

When I use hashes, I generally use $$h{foo} in preference to $h->{foo}, primarily because it's easier to type, and I use hashes quite a bit. If I were trying to make it visually distinctive, I'd make the harder to type one be for the less frequently used case. Thus, I'd use something like:

$$hashref{key}->('arg');

To my eye, that stands out better. (But with my luck, it would blow up, so I'd better whip up a test...)

$ cat t.pl use strict; use warnings; sub p { print "foo(", join(", ", @_), ")\n"; } my $hr = { key=>\&p }; $$hr{key}->('arg'); $ perl t.pl foo(arg)

When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.
