in reply to Thoughts on replacing -> with .



I use Perl once in a while, and still think that -> should not be replaced. Leave it be if that's possible.

    I find that many people do something like:


    when the following should suffice:


      Iím one of those people, and Iím not entirely sure why I do it. Iím fully aware that the later arrows are optional. The one arrow notation feels a bit asymmetric, and it doesnít show that they all are refs in there, I guess.

      I usually write ${${$$var{key1}}{key2}}{key3}, or, very rarely $$var{key1}{$key2}{$key3} or an intermediate variant. I never use arrow dereferencing.

        Those are particularly unusual ways of doing it. But hey, TIMTOWTDI.
