in reply to Range operator weirdness?

The range operator (in list context) makes use of the magical auto-increment algorithm if the operands are strings. So the one character '1' is increased in its range. form perlop about Auto-Increment's magic: ...the increment is done as a string, preserving each character within its range...

    >> perl -le '$x = "1"; print ++$x for (1..9)' 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
    The autoincrement of "9" results in "10", not "0".
