in thread Hash order randomization is coming, are you ready?

A casual test looks like that statement is still true:

use 5.17.6; use strict; use warnings; my %a = ( z => 1, y => 2, x => 3); foreach (1..3) { print join(",", keys %a), "\n"; print join(",", values %a), "\n"; while (my ($d,$e) = each %a) { print "$d = $e\n"; } }

run 1

z,y,x 1,2,3 z = 1 y = 2 x = 3 z,y,x 1,2,3 z = 1 y = 2 x = 3 z,y,x 1,2,3 z = 1 y = 2 x = 3

run 2

x,y,z 3,2,1 x = 3 y = 2 z = 1 x,y,z 3,2,1 x = 3 y = 2 z = 1 x,y,z 3,2,1 x = 3 y = 2 z = 1

    Yes indeed. This cannot change. And is guaranteed by the nature of the how keys() and values() are implemented in native hashes (non-magical). Basically they are both achieved by walking the bucket array from left to right and within a bucket from top to bottom. Since they both do the same data structure walk they both return the same results. However note this is true only of a /given/ hash. You can't assume that one hashes keys() will match another's values() even if they contain the same list of keys().
