in reply to How can one determine context within FETCH?

You can probably use overload to overload the use of your objects(!) as arrayrefs and hashrefs. See the cookbook section on "Two-face references" for an example.

However, your (whole) array context will need to look like this:

@names = @{$root->{'var'}->{'spool'}}; # List of files/dirs

(Which to my mind is a plus; having a hash element lookup return a list is at best just too surprising and at worst downright abuse of syntax. YMMV.)

The Sidhekin proves Sidhe did it!
