Maintaining the same order between values and keys should mean you can depend on keys returning the same order each time, otherwise how is values supposed to know which order to present its order?

my @keys1 = keys %some_hash; my @keys2 = keys %some_hash; #different from @keys1? my @values = values %some_hash; # same order as @keys1 or same as @key +s2?
That makes it look pretty dependable to me, assuming: a) same process (or a fork of it), and b) hash otherwise unchanged between the two calls to keys.

Personally, I only rely on the order when I'm doing something like @hash2{keys %hash1} = values %hash1;, otherwise I don't think I ever rely on the order from keys (if I care, I sort them) or values (there's no real way to sort values the same as sorting keys anyway), so I doubt I'm affected, but only one way to find out. :-)

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
