in reply to Perl allows package names consisting entirely of colons

I'm more surprised about the package NAMESPACE BLOCK syntax which seems to be quite new.

Well hopefully the old Perl4 namespace separator (i.e. Single'Quote ) can't be used the same way ... ;-)

Cheers Rolf

    It was introduced in Perl 5.14. Perl 5.12 also introduced package NAME VERSION. The two can be combined, a la:

    package Foo::Bar 1.2 { ...; }
    perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
