PerlScript with ASP question

Hi,

I have an ASP page that uses PerlScript. I also have a Dictionary object stored in a Session variable.
Now my questions is how can I set an item in the Dictionary object that is in a Session variable.

In VBScript that would be:
Session.Contents.Item("MyDictionary").Item("MyItem") = "something"

I tried:
$Session->Contents->Item('MyDictionary')->Item('MyItem') = 'something';
and
$Session->Contents->Item('MyDictionary')->SetProperty('Item', 'MyItem', 'something');

And it fails.

Thanks,
Alex

$Session is a "build in" object that is available to all ASP pages.

Remember, this is in a ASP page:

<%@ LANGUAGE = "PerlScript" %>
<%
 #PerlScript code here
%>

$Session->{MyDictionary} = {MyItem => 'something'};
$something = $Session->{MyDictionary}{MyItem};

Tried it and it doesn't seem to work.

However, this:

$my_dict = $Session->Contents('MyDictionary');
$my_dict->SetProperty('Item', 'MyItem', 'something');

seems to do the job.
