I think you should point out that when you do

my %newSource = %$source; # dereference it all at once
you are not just dereferencing $source but making a new and independent copy in %newSource. This may have implications if the code evolves. Any change made to one array will not be reflected in the other, for instance an element removed from %$source is not removed from %newSource and the removal of $source will not imply removal of %newSource

Cheers,
R.

[GotToBTru]: no, lookup
[stevieb]: no, I mean have you considered using a dispatch table. an 80 condition if/else is huge :)
[GotToBTru]: that is how this should have been done, no question
[GotToBTru]: probably back when there were 5 or so clauses
