Not in core, it doesn't. (Though I wish it did.)

Wish granted.

Really, it does:

#! perl -slw use strict; package Thing; sub new { bless [], $_[0] }; sub push { push @{ shift() }, @_ } package main; use Data::Dump qw[ pp ]; my %x = ( foo => [ map Thing->new, 1 .. 10 ] ); $x{foo}[0]->push( 1,2,3 ); pp \%x; __END__ C:\test>junk66 { foo => [ bless([1, 2, 3], "Thing"), bless([], "Thing"), bless([], "Thing"), bless([], "Thing"), bless([], "Thing"), bless([], "Thing"), bless([], "Thing"), bless([], "Thing"), bless([], "Thing"), bless([], "Thing"), ], }

That's 5.10, but it's worked right back to 5.6.1 (and probably before, but that's before my time with Perl.)

(And if aesthetics is the current, important criteria for the future of Perl5, there are plenty of other areas that definitely rate attention long before this.)

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
