in reply to Doubt in assigning hash reference values for Constant pragma declaration ?

use constant A => $hash;
is evaluated at compilation time, before
my $hash = { 'a' => 2 };
has been executed.

Yo can use a BEGIN block to make the assignment at compile time:

my $hash; BEGIN { $hash = { 'a' => 2 } } use constant A => $hash;
Or also:
my $hash; use constant A => $hash = {'a' => 2};
