in reply to XML indexoffset question

I don't see how your question relates to Perl.

As XML is an abstract data storage format, I suggest you ask the people who you get the files from about the format and the meaning and intention of the tags and their values.

[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.
[choroba]: unit tests++
