in reply to Re^2: Watch the value of hash key in perldebug
in thread Watch the value of hash key in perldebug

Don't you think that's an overkill for the purpose of a watch expression for debugging?

And a simple package Target::Package; directive inside the sub should have a similar effect - if marshalling was the intention - without the need of aliasing.

    I have coded my understanding of the original program, using a package to simulate one of the modules. My only contribution was to 'export' the hash with a symbol table assignment. Had I used a true module, I could have used the normal export mechanism. I did not think of that. This simulation was not able to duplicate the debug problem. Perhaps frogsausage can use this as start to demo that problem.

      Ok now I understand, thanks for the effort. :)

      But I doubt that the OP will help us clarify his problem, he's been here several times again without giving further feedback.

      And I have no clue where Devel::Symdump comes into the picture, it's not a part of standard perldebug.
