in thread Hash references and efficiency

I've actually always coded like this:

my %hash = ( jim => 'fred', babs => 'buster' ); my $href = \%hash; print $$href{jim}, "\n";

But you're saying that the $href->{jim} syntax is preferred?

    Why are you doing it like that? There's no reason to use a hashref in the above code. Use refs for complex data structures or for passing hashes and arrays back and forth between subs.
