in reply to Things every perl programmer should know?

After several such questions in the past couple of days, I'd say that the crucial thing that all Perl programmers need to know is that hashes associate strings to scalars, and that's all. Learn how to deal with references to fit within that constraint. Learn what tricky module hacks can make hashes "appear" to break the rules.
