in reply to aliasing a hash field

Yeah, ehm, well, I must have been high on something when I wrote that. :-)

*arr = $h{'key'} is the obvious solution to Y that should have crossed my mind.

$h{'key'}[0,1] may not be invalid syntax but it's definitely not what I meant.

The solution to X is that I simply make a method to set the things I want to show to the subs instead of adding magic to manipulating the object.

My question was totally unclear and I apologize. Seeing that I got helpful and not bashing replies confirms my deep conviction that the Perlmonks community is one of the most mature, tolerant and wonderful communities to ever inhabit the cyberspace.

use strict; use warnings; print "Just Another Perl Hacker\n";
