[Rt-devel] Use of UpdateRecordObject

I need a little help in determining the proper way of calling sub UpdateRecordObject ().

In looking at the Mason compiled version of Modify.html, I have come up with the following 
fragment of a call to update an existing user object.  I know it is not right but can't 
figure out the proper way.  The error msg I'm getting is:

    Can't use string ('Name') as a HASH ref ...

I suspect my problem is beginnng with the "ARGSRef => ..." argument?  Can someone set me
