Re: Array of Hashes or Hash of Arrays

in reply to Array of Hashes or Hash of Arrays

How would you get at a value from an Array of Hashes? You would first have to specify one of the hashes in the array and then the value in that particular hash. So, first an array access, then a hash access, right? A Hash of Arrays would be the other way round, first a hash access, then an array access.

Now as in any computer language I know expressions are evaluated from inner to outer braces, for example 2+5 would be the first do be evaluated in (3+(7*(2+5)+4)). So look at your expression, what is the innermost expression, an array or hash access? What is the outer expression, array or hash access? Once you know that you know what structure it is.

[Corion]: Hi Discipulus!
[marto]: hopefully you guys are also well :)
[Corion]: marto: Yeah - I'm looking for a week off in a week, even if it'll be a trip to Amsterdam ;)
[Discipulus]: oh thanks, i'm always at well as the ratchet or bucket
[Corion]: But I'm slowly starting to get into programming again - yesterday I translated my talk for YAPC::E (in Amsterdam) to English, and decided to put my Jekyll-clone to rest for the time being
[Corion]: Discipulus++ # being well is like being earnest
[marto]: hopefully next year I'll be in a position to go to Perly things in Europe :)
[Corion]: Maybe I'll use the Real Jekyll a bit to get a feel for how it actually works, and to get annoyed by it ;)
[Corion]: marto: That would be cool :) There is no kids care at Perly events unfortunately, so it's not entirely family friendly
[Corion]: I think I should define a set of (say) five projects through which I rotate from time to time, just to prevent myself from being bored/annoyed by the problems they get stuck in ;)
