    Correct. Note that I said "misleading", not "wrong" or "incorrect" :)

    It's as misleading as @hash and %scalar are. It is of course obvious that the former is an array and the latter is a hash.

[Corion]: But without instructions on how to easily test things yourself, I don't think such a call to arms is helpful
[Corion]: (this post on nntp.perl.org / p5p makes it seem to me that smoke testers seem to have a blind spot there)
[Corion]: Hmmm. Maybe setting $ENV{PERL5LIB}=" some path without dot"; perl Makefile.PL; make test already is enough to locally test your module...
[Corion]: Meh, no, will need a BEGIN hook...
[Corion]: ... and PERL5OPT does not like -e in it :-(
[Corion]: Ah. The magic invocation is set PERL5OPT=-M-lib=. (equivalent of no lib '.';
[Corion]: )
