Actually, you don't need * in readline *ARGV, readline ARGV is enough.

strict allows unquoted strings where filehandles are expected. readline creates such context. readline ARGV equals readline 'ARGV'. Like it or not, you're using a symbolic reference!

So while you are right that the * isn't needed, I strongly advise against using readline with a bareword.

Juerd # { site => '', plp_site => '', do_not_use => 'spamtrap' }
