NAME

Tie::RefHash - use references as hash keys

SYNOPSIS

    require 5.004;
    use Tie::RefHash;
    tie HASHVARIABLE, 'Tie::RefHash', LIST;

    untie HASHVARIABLE;

DESCRIPTION

This module provides the ability to use references as hash keys if you first tie the hash variable to this module.

It is implemented using the standard perl TIEHASH interface. Please see the tie entry in perlfunc(1) and perltie(1) for more information.

EXAMPLE

    use Tie::RefHash;
    tie %h, 'Tie::RefHash';
    $a = [];
    $b = {};
    $c = \*main;
    $d = \"gunk";
    $e = sub { 'foo' };
    %h = ($a => 1, $b => 2, $c => 3, $d => 4, $e => 5);
    $a->[0] = 'foo';
    $b->{foo} = 'bar';
    for (keys %h) {
       print ref($_), "\n";
    }
