in thread use fields;

I know that. It worryes me that after month or year Perl developers team will decide to forbid using pseudo hashes.

So, I'm trying to find a way to produce a good code, probably without problems in the future.

It's only my opinion and it doesn't have pretensions of absoluteness!

    Did you read the documentation for the fields pragma? It specifically mentions the differences between the pseudo-hash version for 5.8.x and lower, and the pseudo-hash free version for 5.9.x and higher. This distinction is made because, in 5.9.x and higher, pseudo-hashes will be gone. So, as long as you use fields;, and use fields::new, you should be safe, according to the documentation.

      And using fields::new is supposed to make the warning go away in most circumstances.
