in reply to "array" search

I think you are trying to to this:
if($self->{keys}->[$key]){ # do something with the knowledge that we got the correct key # then exit out of function using this loop } # do something with the knowledge there is no key with that name

    Not quite... $key contains a name, not an index. doing $self->{keys}->[ $key ] won't work.

    I could do $self->{keys}->{$key} but I don't think that would work in the case where I might serialise the object.
