Re: Creating "Lexical" Symbol Table Aliases (a la "use vars") From The Same Packageby moritz (Cardinal)

The proper way to do lexical aliases it through explicit references.
Sadly that means you need an explicit dereferencing step when using the local alias/reference.
On the upside, explicit dereferencing makes it clear that "action at a distance' (changes in local data are propagated to the original data location, and vice versa) is happening. so it might not be a bad thing.
Finally, Lexical::Alias exists (haven't used it yet).
