    4.69: How can I make the Perl equivalent of a C structure/C++ class/hash or array of hashes or arrays?

    Usually a hash ref, perhaps like this:

    $record = {
    NAME => "Jason",
    EMPNO => 132,
    TITLE => "deputy peon",
    AGE => 23,
    SALARY => 37_000,
    PALS => [ "Norbert", "Rhys", "Phineas"],
    };

    References are documented in perlref and the upcoming perlreftut.
    Examples of complex data structures are given in perldsc and perllol.
    Examples of structures and object-oriented classes are in perltoot.

    The perlfaq-workers, a group of volunteers, maintain the perlfaq. They
    are not necessarily experts in every domain where Perl might show up,
    so please include as much information as possible and relevant in any
    corrections. The perlfaq-workers also don't have access to every
    operating system or platform, so please include relevant details for
    corrections to examples that do not work on particular platforms.
    Working code is greatly appreciated.
