in thread OO Perl: Methods To Reference Hash

My hash is being created correctly and looks something like this:
HASH DUMP: 2030000 => 2030000.xml HASH DUMP: 2030001 => 2030001.xml HASH DUMP: 2030002 => 2030002.xml
When I attempt to dump it is after the object has been instantiated with the hash in it using a set() method.
my %hshAgg = $self->get_hshAgg(); dumpHash(%hshAgg);
...the dump looks like this:
HASH DUMP: HASH(0x223db34) =>
What am I doing wrong here?
sub run { my $self = Myobj->new(@_); ... $self->set_hshAgg(%hshAgg); ... } # method within object sub myProblem { my %hshAgg = $self->get_hshAgg(); dumpHash(%hshAgg); }

    Whenever you're trying to debug data structures, I recommend using Data::Dumper. This will help you see the structures in Perl syntax, and will avoid any bugs you may introduce in your own home-spun "dumping" methods.

    use Data::Dumper; ... print Dumper \%hashFoo; print Dumper $refHashFoo;

    Other useful learning materials are in perlreftut and perllol.

      The problem is not with the data, it is with the set() and get() methods that manipulate the hash within the object.
