(well, technically its a list.... but thats for another day)

Another "a-ha!" moment is just one more step away. The '=>' operator is really just a glorified comma. It will quote simple barewords on the LHS, but thats the only difference. Consider the following:

my @a = (1 => 2 => 3 => 4); print "$_\n" for @a;
So, the somewhat unfamiliar:
(arg1=>$blah, arg2=>$blah2)
is really just a very familiar four element list:
( 'arg1' , $blah , 'arg2' , $blah2 )
dressed up with some syntactic sugar. (note the need to quote 'barewords' when using commas)

With this in mind, take another look at your hash assignment and named argument passing.....

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.
