in thread indirect object in camel book

Worse yet, it looks as if almost anything might conceivably be a file handle, like all of the following -->

#!d:/perl/bin/perl -w use strict; use CGI; my $query=new CGI; sub new(*) { print "Ouch!!\n"} my $query2=new CGI; my $query3 = new STDIN; my $query4 = new $query; my $query5 = new query; my $query6 = new 1; my $query7 = new ""; my $query8 = new '';

This also works -- (prints Ouch)

my $query9 = new @;

although the next line is not interpreted correctly.
