NAME ^

Hash::Case::Preserve - hash with enforced lower cased keys

INHERITANCE ^

 Hash::Case::Preserve
   is a Hash::Case
   is a Tie::StdHash

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Hash::Case::Preserve;
 tie my(%cphash), 'Hash::Case::Preserve';
 $cphash{StraNGeKeY} = 3;
 print keys %cphash;         # StraNGeKeY
 print $cphash{strangekey};  # 3
 print $cphash{STRANGEKEY};  # 3

DESCRIPTION ^

Hash::Case::Preserve extends Hash::Case, which lets you play various trics with hash keys. This extension implements a fake hash which is case-insentive. The keys are administered in the casing as they were used: case-insensitive but case-preserving.

METHODS ^

Constructors

$obj->addHashData(HASH)

See "Constructors" in Hash::Case

$obj->addPairs(PAIRS)

See "Constructors" in Hash::Case

$obj->setHash(HASH)

See "Constructors" in Hash::Case

tie(HASH, 'Hash::Case::Preserve', [VALUES,] OPTIONS)

Define HASH to be case insensitive, but case preserving. The hash is initialized with the VALUES, specified as ref-array (passing a list of key-value pairs) or ref-hash.

OPTIONS is a list of key/value pairs, which specify how the hash must handle preservation. Current options:

 -Option--Default
  keep    'LAST'
keep => 'FIRST' | 'LAST'

Which casing is the preferred casing? The FIRST appearance or the LAST. Only stores will affect the casing, deletes will undo the definition. Defaults to LAST, which is slightly faster.
