I'm not sure there is any difference between the "address of a hash" and a
"ref to an [anonymous] hash".  Reading the Getopt::Long may clear that
up... and I did.  Getopt::Long requires a array of options, most commonly
a hash array.  ((1,2,3,4) is equivalent to (1=>2,3=>4))

This discussion is now pointless without seeing your code.  We're beyond
best practace and theory, and no closer to a solution.

Please post some code that demonstrates the error.
