in reply to Re^3: Syntax for casting map to a hash or an array
in thread Syntax for casting map to a hash or an array

I got there! In the end. Somewhat circuitously ...

I knew this

%{ {map { $_ => 'fish' } qw(one two red blue)} }
returned a hash ...

And I knew Dumper needed a reference ...

And I suspected that if I could successfully pass Dumper a reference to an array I might finally understand what was going on with

%{ { ... } }
that bit.

Thank you very much.

Thanks,
