in reply to The PerlMonks FAQ has been updated

++(boo_radley and Site Doc Clan)   8^)   I especially like the "back to Perl Monks FAQ" link on some of the linked FAQs.

I don't mean to complain (really, I don't!), but there still seems to be substantial overlap between these FAQish nodes: Please forgive if y'all are already aware of and/or addressing this quite minor issue.   Of course, there's the distinct possibility that I'm overlooking/unaware_of some valid distinction betwixt all these.
  cheers,

[Eily]: It can also be used to force a copy, and remove magic from a variable
[Eily]: there was a post some time ago about variable coming from regex taking more space than the same string defined directly IIRC
[Eily]: and if there's XS, make sure the scalar holds a string representation, that sounds like bad practice though (forcing that on the call side)
[choroba]: You should never pass $1 without double quotes to a sub
[choroba]: or "I should never", at least
[choroba]: that's not the sub's business
[Eily]: choroba but does $name = $1 solve the issue ?
