By placing it into the scalar slot associated of the typeglob of the functions name.

That's not so good - you run the risk of clobbering something. Doing an implicit 'local' might help, but what do you do with lvalue-able anonymous subs?

*^_ is a much better idea, imho. And, I'd just have it go to @^_ straight off. That way, it would act as a standard assignment does. $foo = 1..3; anyone?

(FYI - it's mnemonic, not pnemonic ... you want memory, not the plague.)

Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

    Good point. Then I agree, @^_ is best.

    Examine what is said, not who speaks.
    Silence betokens consent.
    Love the truth but pardon error.
