my %hash = ('a'=>'test'); my @arr = ($hash{'a'}); print \$hash{'a'}."\n"; print \$arr[0]."\n";
How can I do something like that, except re-use the same data rather than create a copy (same reference, not just same value)? I assume that would be faster? I know I can put the reference in the array, but the values need to be in the array so they can be passed to printf. The size of the array and the keys in the hash will vary. This code will be iterated millions of times, so I want it as fast as possible. The hash won't be used once the array is created, so I'm not concerned about the hash values being modified when the array values are.

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.
