in thread how to get stash name of SV?

So If I understand correctly, the name of SvSTASH is a little bit misleading. it should be SvCLASS or not SvSTASH?

    In an ideal world, perhaps yes.

    I suspect that the choice of name for that field is related to how Perl 5 objects are implemented internally: an object uses some package (internally represented as a "stash", which is a hash storing typeglobs) as its vtable. Perl does not really have classes as distinct objects, so the name SvSTASH doubtless made perfect sense when the feature was added to what became Perl 5.
