In Perl can i define a hash with value as variable?

Hi,

Is it possible in perl to have a hash defined with variables as theirs key values, like:
%account = ('username' => 'boy', 'password' => $password);

Thanks

Yes.
Code:
my $usernamekey='UNIX';
my $passwordvalue='XXXXXX';

my %acct=( $usernamekey => 'boy',
          'password' => $passwordvalue );

my @k=keys %acct;
my @v=values %acct;

print "Keys : @k\n";
print "values : @v\n";

produces
Code:
Keys : password UNIX
values : XXXXXX boy
