Your code example doesn't allow access by name, so what's the advantage of it?

    You could add accessors to the object. Like this:

    sub count { my $self = shift; return $self->[0] unless @_; $self->[0] = shift; } # ... $cc->count(42); print $cc->count;

    changed it, Thanks for your reminding.;)

    I am trying to improve my English skills, if you see a mistake please feel free to reply or /msg me a correction

      But now I can see no advantage to using your example over just using a hash ;)

        No, My way is using a perl object to create a struct, every struct created by this has the same elements and spawned by the same creator.
        my %hash_1 = (number => 123, name => aa, stuff => \@xx); my %hash_2 = (number => 124, name => bb, stuff => \@yy); my %hash_3 = (number => 125, name => cc, stuff => \@zz); #if you chang +e struct, you have to change every instance. ..... ..... ..... my $aa = C_struct->new(123,'aa', [1,2,3]); my $bb = C_struct->new(234,'bb', [2,3,4]); #every instance is spawned +by the same object.
