Constant is not %s reference

(F) A constant value (perhaps declared using the use constant pragma) is being dereferenced, but it amounts to the wrong type of reference. The message indicates the type of reference that was expected. This usually indicates a syntax error in dereferencing the constant value. See 8.9 and "Perl pragma to declare constants" (constant) in the Perl Library Reference Manual (Volume 1).
