  • Merry Christmas to you all! We use = for pairs, but also for something very different: named argument binding. Yes, pairs are used for that, but that introduces problems. The most important problem, ...

  • Recently, I believe we decided that {} should, as a special case, be an empty hash rather than a do-nothing code, because that's more common. However, what do we do about: while $x-- && ...
