Description David-john Burrowes 2003-08-21 16:32:02 UTC
A hashtable shows up in the Local variables as (say)

foo   Hashtable       #950
  [2] Hashtable$Entry (Ted) #946 => (Ted) #946
  [6] Hashtable$Entry (Hashtable) #950 => (Ted) #946
  [8] Hashtable$Entry (String) "sdf" => (Ted) #946

This seems puzzling to me, and hard to "parse". 
I'd have expected something more like:

foo    Hashtable       #950
  #946 Ted             #946
  #950 Ted             #946
  "sdf"Ted             #946

But, that might not be right, because I haven't
thought about it much. It would be good if HIE
(Jano ;-) could look into this at some point and
see if there's a better scheme than the one above?
