in reply to HASH value as a subroutine call

You need to populate the hash with code-references (\&sub).


use strict; # my $code_ref = {'SUM', 'sum'}; my $code_ref = {'SUM', \&sum}; sub sum($$){...} # do you really need ($$) ? That is rarely useful. # ($codes->{'SUM'})->(4,5); # $codes? You mean $code_ref? $code_ref->{'SUM'}->(4,5);

    sub sum($$){...} # do you really need ($$) ? That is rarely useful.

    Rarely useful, often misused, and in this case (in which prototypes are not checked at all) totally useless. E.g.:

    >perl -wMstrict -le "sub sum ($$); ;; my $codes = { 'SOFT' => 'sum', 'HARD' => \&sum, }; ;; $codes->{HARD}->('HARD', 1, 2, 3, 4); ;; { no strict 'refs'; $codes->{SOFT}->('SOFT', 9, 8, 7, 6); } ;; sub sum ($$) { print qq{(@_) arguments: }, scalar @_; } " (HARD 1 2 3 4) arguments: 5 (SOFT 9 8 7 6) arguments: 5

[thezip]: G'day all. Apparently Strawberry Perl has issues with deploying Spreadsheet::XLSX for Perl 5.24.1. I need this module to maintain compatability with an existing script. I'm new to Strawberry -- is there a safe way to manually deploy this?
[MidLifeXis]: Where is it hanging up?
[MidLifeXis]: ISTR having a couple of issue based on undeclared dependencies around the time I was looking at that module on my last project, but cannot say if that was the module that I had the dependency issues with.
[MidLifeXis]: (5.22 at that time)
[MidLifeXis]: Yeah, I know, really helpful :-)
[Corion]: If all else fails, Spreadsheet::XLSX should be "installable" by manually copying the files, provided that the prerequisites are met
