in thread A different OO approach

Odd. I didn't even notice. I'm not sure I understand - I shuffled parens around but there's no difference. This is funny and sort of embarrassing.. what am I missing?

    A single hash is a special case with \(). From perlref.

    As a special case, "\(@foo)" returns a list of refer- ences to the contents of @foo, not a reference to @foo itself. Likewise for %foo, except that the key refer- ences are to copies (since the keys are just strings rather than full-fledged scalars).

    Annoying eh?

      Wow, ya learn something new every day. Yes, annoying indeed. Ugh.
