in thread 5.26 sigil reference syntax in subfunction

I didn't understand your reply at all. I showed a line of code that was almost identical to the line you were having problems with, but which exhibited the behaviour you appear to have wanted (dumping the second-level keys of multidimensional hash). If this is insufficient, you'll have to describe in much more detail what it is you're trying to achieve.

Dave.

    It's multidimensional in variables. An example line is:

    $$columhash{'config'}{"config_names[$i]"}{'rowstates'}{$j} = substr($$options_lines[$j], $horizontal_offset + $i * 2, 1);

    If I want to immediately print the value, I can do:

    print $$columhash{'config'}{"config_names[$i]"}{'rowstates'}{$j}; or print $$columhash{'config'}->{"config_names[$i]"}->{'rowstates'}{$j};

    For the foreach (still in the function), if I want what the config_names$ were, I can do:

    foreach $key (sort keys $columnhash->('config')->%* )

    or

    foreach $key (sort keys %{ $columnhash->('config') } )

    or even

    foreach $key (sort keys %{ $$columnhash{'config'} } )

    but not

    foreach $key (sort keys %$columnhash->('config')

    and more annoyingly, when I call the function with:

    assign_columns_to_file( \@options_lines, $files{'options'}{'columns'} );

    It will keep 'options' as a subkey, but will not keep 'columns' used during the function (presumably because of passing an undef) So I figure to see if explicitly referencing it will work, but I can't use ->\%, I can only use \%{ } i.e.:

    assign_columns_to_file( \@options_lines, \%{ $files{'options'}{'columns'} } ); Ultimately I end up having to use the surrounding referencing. I'm splitting things more into one-off functions, but I'll still end up with foreachs and \%{} running around everywhere.
      assign_columns_to_file( \@options_lines, $files{'options'}{'columns'} );

      It will keep 'options' as a subkey, but will not keep 'columns' used during the function

      Again, I don't understand what you are trying to say here. Can you please give a short, but complete self-contained example program that demonstrates the issue.

      Dave.

    Sorry for the duplicate post, I didn't notice the minimizing.
