in thread localtime parse within hash init

Thank you (++) - no - I was not aware of zip/mesh in List::MoreUtil.

However, my attempt at using it fails:

perl -MList::MoreUtils -E 'my %stuff=(otherinfo=>"this and that", dateinfo=>{List::MoreUtils::zip qw|sec min hour mday mon year wday yday isdst| ,localtime(time) }); say "sec=",$stuff{dateinfo}{sec}, " year=",$stuff{dateinfo}{year}' Type of arg 1 to List::MoreUtils::mesh must be array (not list) at -e +line 5, near ") }" Type of arg 2 to List::MoreUtils::mesh must be array (not localtime) a +t -e line 5, near ") }" Execution of -e aborted due to compilation errors.
Any workarounds ? Why does it not like a list ?

    zip(@{[qw|sec min hour mday mon year wday yday isdst|]} , @{[localtime +]});

      Hi Loops,

      thank you for showing the right way to call it. I had to lough. In this case we really have a kind of 'sigilmania'. I'm not sure whether this is more elegant. ;-)
