in reply to References with hashes

This simple change gets your program closer to working:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my %address; $address{Bray} = { Name => 'Braden Mailloux', Str => 'kapellenstr. 1', EMail => 'brayshakes@gmail.com' }; my $email = $address{Bray}->{EMail}; print_address($address{Bray});

After this change, running it only gives the error "Undefined subroutine &main::print_address called at bray.pl line 17."

You could also do this:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my %address = ( Bray => { Name => 'Braden Mailloux', Str => 'kapellenstr. 1', EMail => 'brayshakes@gmail.com' }); my $email = $address{Bray}->{EMail}; print_address($address{Bray});

I believe it has something to do with the hash key not existing as you're trying to declare it lexically, but I couldn't find anything concrete (to me) in the docs. See my and perlsub for more details.
