in thread Perl Internals: Hashes

The parameter part of a subroutine call is normally a list. If a hash or an array gets put in one they are listified. In the case of a hash this means a list of key/value pairs. Likewise, if an array contains an even number of elements you can "pour" it into a hash and the elements will be paired off into key/value slots.
