Hmmmm.... I see your point. @{$x->{y}} _is_ probably a better way to clarify this to the parser(and to the poor soul who has to maintain the code somewhere down the line- probably me.)

Looking at perlop, I'm a little confused as to _why_ it works myself. Quoting from the Docs: (with my comments not in <code> tags)

The Arrow Operator ``->'' is an infix dereference operator, just as it is in C and C++. If the right side is either a [...], {...}, or a (...) subscript,
..It seems this describes the situation..
then the left side must be either a hard or symbolic reference to an array, a hash, or a subroutine respectively. (Or technically speaking, alocation capable of holding a hard reference, if it's an array or hash reference being used for assignment.) See the perlreftut manpage and the perlref manpage. Otherwise, the right side is a method name or a simple scalar variable containing either the method name or a subroutine reference, and the left side must be either an object (a blessed reference) or a class name (that is, a package name). See the perlobj manpage.
It seems somehow the -> is binding before the @ in @$x, contrary to what I see in perlop
I guess I should consider it a _feature_.
Thank you, chip for noticing something that I completely glossed over. Good brain food.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
