-meth
Any code references present in the hash will become methods.
This makes it sound like you can add methods after creating the hash. (Or, if keys are locked, that you can turn an existing key into a method), but from reading the code it looks like only subref present at creation are called directly.

My original question was about whether the -meth option made it impossible to have a subref as a value, the answer would be it's impossible to have both methods and subref values at creation. Maybe the methods should be removed from the hashs' keys though, otherwise if you iterate over the hash with each it would be impossible to tell methods and subref values appart. Also if you have a method $hash->meth(), this mean you'd be able to set $hash->{meth} (to either a plain value or a subref) without any impact on the method call.

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