NAME

multidimensional - disables multidimensional array emulation

CONTENTS

VERSION

version 0.011

SYNOPSIS



    no multidimensional;

    $hash{1, 2};                # dies
    $hash{join($;, 1, 2)};      # doesnt die



DESCRIPTION

Perl’s multidimensional array emulation stems from the days before the language had references, but these days it mostly serves to bite you when you typo a hash slice by using the $ sigil instead of @.

This module lexically makes using multidimensional array emulation a fatal error at compile time.

METHODS

    unimport

Disables multidimensional array emulation for the remainder of the scope being compiled.

    import

Enables multidimensional array emulation for the remainder of the scope being compiled;
