Angel has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

How to I get at the hash it's self and not the reference? I need the hash that it returns to get at the data for a mail merge project?

    By de-referencing:
    my %hash = %{$sth->fetchrow_hashref()};
    But you don't have to do that ... you could do something like:
    while (my $row = $sth->fetchrow_hashref()) { my $mail = $row->{mail}; print "$mail\n"; }
    just as easily IMHO.

    The same way you work with any other hash ref:

    %hash = %$hashref; # or to get at a specific value: $value = $hashref->{key}; # or you can use fetchrow_arrayref: my @names = @{$sth->{NAME_lc}}; my %hash; while (my $values = $sth->fetchrow_arrayref) { @hash{@names} = @$values; }
