Variables whose names begin with % are hashes, which are essentially arrays subscripted by strings. As with arrays, %sue is a hash, and it is a different variable from $sue, though members of %sue are selected by $sue{$s}.

The built-in function keys(%sue) returns an array of all the keys (subscripts) of the hash %sue.
