in reply to I can't get no...

Do you really know that you couldn't be doing better in C?

Or is it that to do better means changing data structures, and that is so much work that you avoid even thinking about the possibility?

    I think you may have a point there. In perl it's easy to move data structures from one form to another. In C, it's so hard that it would probably require a large rewrite of the program.

[1nickt]: The best way is to scope it tightly so it just goes away when you are finished with it.
[perldigious]: but... but... perldigious is the unvirtuous kind of lazy in this case. :-)
[perldigious]: Just kidding. Thanks 1nickt, I'll go ahead and do it the right way. An extra set of brackets and a little extra indentation isn't too much to ask.
[karlgoethebier]: perldigious: perhaps a block if you are paranoid ;-)
[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. :-)
