[Eily]: Discipulus try looking at $@
[Eily]: or count the parentheses :)
[Discipulus]: stupid me! I had to stay at home and do not code with the flu..
[holli]: bacause it's a syntax error
[Discipulus]: yes sorry forget and forgive me
[Eily]: for what it's worth I didn't go for the brightest solution either
[Eily]: I tried print eval '2+1/3*(2+2/5))' or print $@
[Eily]: and therefore concluded that the eval did succeed because there was no printed error :P
[Eily]: stupid operator precedence :D
