" $hashref = { 'Adam' => 'Eve', 'Clyde' => 'Bonnie', }; This doesn't look like anything more than single key/value pairs"

That's right, and the example you gave here creates an anonymous hash. The hash has no name, but you are able to access it, not by its name, but be ref.

So on the same page, this

my $aref = [1,2,3];

creates an anonymous array.

When a complex structure like hash of hash of hash is a tree of anonymous hashs, an anonymous hash could just as simple as the example you gave. It is not measured by complexity ;-)

Title:
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
