Hi perlperl,

If you are trying to debug a complex hash structure you could use Data::Dumper like this:

use Data::Dumper;

sub display {
    $this = shift;
    print Dumper( $this );
}

or you could just iterate through the key/value pairs like this:

sub display {
    $this = shift;
    foreach $k ( keys %$this ) {
        print "$k ::::: " . $this->{$k} . "\n";
    }
}
