( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Having just seen an instance of iteration over a hash and getting values there on the basis of string equality tests against string constants from a co-worker (in VB.Net though, but the same argument applies of course)…

… maybe it's more common among programmer who grew up in an environment with arrays being the most advanced dynamic data structure?

On the other hand, I'm not sure what to make of the Club-Uzi-quote. The moment you get away from equality tests, because the particular key is only an abstraction of a wider class of strings which all have to refer to that particular value (e.g. case-insensitivity, internationalization, whatever) you are supposed to iterate over the keys (or the key-value-pairs) of the hash, aren't you?

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.
