Functions

sub_item

Takes a hash as a first argument and a key as the second argument. Will iterate through the hash until it finds the key and then return the corisponding value.

Example:

$hash = {
  'a' => {
    'aa' => '1',
    'aaa' => '2'
  },
  'b' => ['3','4'],
  'c' => '5'
}

sub_hash($hash,'a')

Would return: {'aa' => '1', 'aaa' => '2'}

  • Type: rvalue

replace_hash

Example:

$original_hash = {
  'test' => {
    'ensure' => 'present',
    'groups' => ['sudo']
  }
}

$modifier = { 'groups' => ['wheel'] }

replace_hash($orginal_hash, $modifier)

Would return: { 'test' => { 'ensure' => 'present', 'groups' => ['wheel'] } }

  • Type: rvalue
