Which release of Perl are you using in Windows? ( I see the same thing when warnings are enabled in Strawberry)

Dreferencing without an explicit conversion to a hash resolves this, ( and works with Perl in Unix) ie:
print "hi : ${$data}{'2'} \n";

Hi Skrynesaver,

but without dereferncing the hash how this will work ${$data}{'2'} , So what i need to do in window to make this
print "hi : ${%$data}{'2'} \n"; statement work......

this is the perl version in my windows
print "hi : ${%$data}{'2'} \n";
