( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hi. I need to create a hash wich name is take from a variable value in a code similar to this:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; our $variable = 'name01'; { no strict 'refs'; our %$variable = ( valorC => 'value03', valorD => 'value04', ); use strict 'refs'; } print %$variable, "\n";

But %$variable gives an error (Can't declare hash dereference in "our" at ..., near "$variable =")

How should I do to make it work?

PLEASE, dont't tell me I dont want to do this.

I want to do exactly what I said above. Not to use hash of hashes or anything else. I DO want to use a variable as a hash name and I'm aware of the risks.

Thanks for any help.
