Yes, you shouldn't go messing with the hash behind my blessed ref when I give it to you as an object. But that isn't what I'm talking about.

You have some function that does something useful with a hash. I have an object that consists of a blessed reference to a hash. Inside the code for that class, I have to mess with my own hash. Well, if this manipulation of my own hash would be made easier by using your useful function, then why shouldn't I be allowed to do that?

Now, it'd be nice, being inside the class code, if I could get a non-blessed reference to my hash. But I can't. If that one thing were different, then I wouldn't mind the use of "HASH" eq ref($r) nearly so much.

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.
