( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The behaviour you are seeing is actually a feature of Data::Dumper - the $VAR1->{'polished_data'}{'start'} is simply pointing to the first occurrence of what is exactly the same thing. It does this with all references:
use Data::Dumper; use Time::Piece; my $tp = gmtime; my @array = (200,400); my $data = { 'one' => { 'tp' => $tp, 'array' => \@array, }, 'two' => { 'tp' => $tp, 'array' => \@array, }, }; print Dumper $data; Output: $VAR1 = { 'one' => { 'array' => [ [ 200, 400 ] ], 'tp' => bless( [ 35, 2, 2, 24, 2, '116', 4, 83, 0, 1458784955, 0 ], 'Time::Piece' ) }, 'two' => { 'array' => $VAR1->{'one'}{'array'}, 'tp' => $VAR1->{'one'}{'tp'} } };
To prevent it from doing that you can set Deepcopy:
use Data::Dumper; $Data::Dumper::Deepcopy = 1; ... Output: $VAR1 = { 'one' => { 'array' => [ [ 200, 400 ] ], 'tp' => bless( [ 48, 10, 2, 24, 2, '116', 4, 83, 0, 1458785448, 0 ], 'Time::Piece' ) }, 'two' => { 'array' => [ [ 200, 400 ] ], 'tp' => bless( [ 48, 10, 2, 24, 2, '116', 4, 83, 0, 1458785448, 0 ], 'Time::Piece' ) } };

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.
