If I do a get out of a hashtable and modify a member variable of the returned object, will that modification be mirrored in the hashtable or do I have to do a 'put' again?

The hashtable returns a reference to the original object, not a copy - so it's been modified now. No need for a put.

Hashtable casting error
Use of memory == less? GC : Soft ref
Any way to accomplish this ?
