not fair. you tell me not to laugh then throw that one-liner at me...but actually i know a guy that does that. at least i think he's planning on doing that. mr rodriquez has one kid, a boy, that he calls hose-a. i guess he'll call his next son hose-b. ok, your turn, don't laugh.

    Extremely sorry if you felt wrong with that. But friend, it was just an example.

    Ok I am not laughing. But you will understand the importance of hashes once you start using the language to its full extent. Simpler code, shorter code, understandable code, easy to use etc. etc.

    Correct me if I am wrong. I believe perl was the first language to include hashes as first-class citizens. There must have been several selling points due to which all industry-standard languages like Java, C-Sharp, Python have now something similar to hash through API or jar or dll or dictionary
