Subject RE: Passing A Hash Ref From One .epl To Another
Date Thu, 17 Jul 2003 19:41:46 GMT
There should be no significant difference between an array reference and
a hash reference.  Namespace doesn't apply to references, only
variables, so passing a hash reference inside an array reference should
work just fine.  However, since that appears to not be the case...

I've found that using adding the option 'package => __PACKAGE__' to the
Execute arguments works well in certain circumstances.  Note that this
will duplicate the compiled code for each page that calls the subpage.
However, if that code is relatively small, the hit isn't that bad.  It's
also very livable if the subpage is only used by a couple pages, one of
which is rarely called.

I feel that this is kludgy, but it works.  Note that this effectively
brings the subpage completely into the namespace of the calling page,
and so you do need to make certain you don't step on variables used
outside of the subpage in the subpage code.
