in thread Is auto-dereferencing worth forcing upgrades to newer versions of Perl?

It doesn't work on unblessed references, which is what the auto-deref feature does work on. (I thought you were referring to autobox.)

    No. I wouldn't touch autobox with yours let alone my own :)

[Corion]: marto: You mean "Sane Dots Dramatic Reading of ITIL" ? ;)
[marto]: Sane Dots, chapter 13: ITIL never work :P
[marto]: sorry, bad pun of it'll :P
[Corion]: :-D
[Corion]: I think that ITIL is mostly to prevent people from doing harm to a system that basically runs unattended :)
[Corion]: Maybe you could reduce ITIL to a computer network, a man and a dog. The network runs the computations. The man is there to feed the dog. The dog is there to prevent the man from accessing the computers.
[marto]: from experience of this side of the fence, it's all about proving to people that you are ITIL compliant, then the client ignores logical processes anyway :P
