I think you need a debugging perl for the environment var to work. [...] you can get the same effect from Hash::Util::hash_seed()

Both environment variables shown in the OP seem to be working:

$ PERL_HASH_SEED_DEBUG=1 perl -MHash::Util=hash_seed -le'print hash_se +ed' HASH_SEED = 165032588 165032588 $ PERL_HASH_SEED_DEBUG=1 perl -MHash::Util=hash_seed -le'print hash_se +ed' HASH_SEED = 725441538 725441538

tye's getKeyCollisions shows always the same output here:

$ PERL_HASH_SEED_DEBUG=1 perl | md5sum HASH_SEED = 501557310 e4d6401f730eede592733482fac0ec61 - $ PERL_HASH_SEED_DEBUG=1 perl | md5sum HASH_SEED = 1324598606 e4d6401f730eede592733482fac0ec61 -

I don't know if it's supposed to do so or not. I'm beginning to take a fancy to this :) since it seems to be impossible to obtain some different output of anything between runs of perl (well, anything except hash seeds!).
