Sorry if you're on the PLUG list and this is a duplicate.
What are the down side issues with using a hash to hold configuration
values over using a pile of scalars?
I am working at a redesign/enhancement of a web application ( that
currently does not use mod_perl ) and need to know if there are
processing speed/memory issues with using a hash to hold the values.
Both with and without mod_perl involved would be nice.
I have traditional used the hash because it makes suing TT
easier/simpler but the app I'm reworking uses scalars.
The original developer , from three years ago , is no longer around but
he did some pretty nifty stuff code-wise so I figured he had a reason
for using scalars instead of a hash.
