in reply to I blog...

Infrequently and my family is not pleased. My wife and I started a blog to keep family up to date from 2000miles away. We go in spurts and after a couple weeks of not blogging, we start getting angry email/calls.

That might be one of the reasons that we moved ;)

[choroba]: but undef %hash and %hash = () both work, too, but the first one keeps the memory allocated, while the latter makes it available for other parts of the program.
[choroba]: iirc
[perldigious]: karlgoethebier: Well it is a pretty old and complicated (for me) bit of code I wrote (poorly by my current standards), so I'm expecting everything to break when I add the scoping and find out what else is undesireably scope changed. :-)
[perldigious]: Ah, thanks choroba, that sort of thing was precisely what I was wondering when I asked.
[perldigious]: I didn't want to tie up memory unecessarily basically, I wanted to "delete" it specifically to free it up, and wasn't sure I was even accomplishing that.
[stevieb]: perldigious You should start by writing some unit tests. That'll ensure current functionality doesn't break with changes.
