in reply to Mini-Tutorial: Dereferencing Syntax

It's also worth noting that the following are two completely different things.

@hash{'key1', 'key2'} $hash{'key1', 'key2'}

The first one is basically a shorthand for:

($hash{'key1'}, $hash{'key2'})

The second one is:

$hash{join($;, 'key1', 'key2')}

... where $; is the subscript separator, which defaults to \034.

    And similarly (though not identically, certainly) for arrays.

    The difference between hash lookups and hash slices has nothing to do with references or how to use them. I shall not add such a note.
