in thread what would you like to see in perl5.12?

Do you have a use case in mind? Given the lack of order of keys and the alternation of keys and values, I can't come up with one.

    The really simple one of checking what is going on in the hash when debugging.

    It would be even better if the formatting was a little more sophisticated than just a space separated list. Say key1:value1 key2:value2 key3:value3, but that's a nicety.

    Just as with the default interpolation of hashes in Perl 6, if you need more sophisticated layout, sorting etc. then it's back to rolling your own or using a dumper, but sometimes you just want a quick check. Currently I would use the "@{[ %hash ]}", but a simpler syntax would be good if it could be made to work.

    No biggy, but the thought crossed my mind.

    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
