Currently, i am using the following to pass a group of directives into a subroutine for use:
(my $host, my $source, my $destination) = @_;
however with a recent post i've made, i've come to some realization that it will be significantly much easier to put these values with a hash. can i do this directly replacing the above line, or do i need additional code that would relate something like.
my %args = ( h => $host, s => $source, d => $destination,);
i'd hate to create three variables that wouldnt be used through the sub other than to stick the values into a hash.
