I wonder, how to prevent (control) hashes members?
Let say
my %hash; $hash{'name'} = "Doraemon"; $hash{'age'} = "1000"; #... some code # oh! my birthday, i'm getting older $hash{'ege'} = "1001"; # oops, i just add new key
How to avoid this (silly) mistake?
One way i can think of is to define the keys in constants,
$k_name = 'name'; $k_age = 'age'; $hash{$k_ege} = "Do"; # warning, gotcha!
so the compiler can catch the mistake, when use strict. Any more 'efficient' ideas?

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.
