in reply to Capitalized subroutine names and packages

This really surprised me. I figured that main::Bar would be called and return "Foo". But then I thought that "Foo"->new() would be using "Foo" as a string reference, which isn't generally allowed with strict.

Obviously, there is something deeper here that I do not understand. Could someone please explain why use strict; doesn't complain?

Thanks.

    When you write Bar->new, the "Bar" is already a string. The package is resolved at runtime via the symbol table. It has to, if you think about it.

[LanX]: before digging into deep debugging ... I have a strange UTF8 problem, probably it rings a bell:
[LanX]: two utf8 strings from different sources are base64 encoded, but after joining both the umlauts in teh second get deleted
[Corion]: LanX: You can't just join two base64 strings together
[LanX]: (not a high priority bug because I can use some HTML entities in the second string)
[Corion]: base64 is padded to a multiple of 4 chars (or something)
[LanX]: misunderstanding, I joined them before converting to base64
[Corion]: Also, I would be wary of encodings and try to make really sure that both input strings are UTF-8. Maybe join the input strings from one source together to see whether they decode as bad or not
[Corion]: LanX: Then the problem should persist without encoding to base64 too ;)
