  • Hello, I am forking this off the "Perl 6 OO and bless" thread since that seems to have gotten bogged down in what it all means to Perl 5 interoperability. This was not really my intent with the ...

  • In perl 5: my @a = (1,2,3); delete $a[1]; print exists $a[1]; This is false, whereas $a[0] and $a[2] do exist. This is creepy. Not only is it creepy, it raises a whole bunch of questions with ...
