So barewords were introduced with the assumption subroutine calls would always have amperands -- and as hindsight works so well, we can all see what a bad assumption that was.

(besides, you said 'Presuming no "use strict" (or the days of Perl3)')

... and I'm a newbie -- I learned from Matt's Script Archive the llama book in um...1994? 1995? using Perl 4. I've never used Perl 3.

[ambrus]: wait. I understand no wife and children, but how do you not have to pay for a house?
[hippo]: I had a low-paid job about 20 years ago and seriously considered going down to a 3-day week. Would have worked 60% of the time for about 80% of the cash.
[Corion]: ambrus: Well, I pay rent, but don't own a house with variable/ unforeseeable costs
[hippo]: The thesholds/benefits balance at the time was nuts.
[hippo]: But that doesn't last because, you know ... politicians. :(
[Corion]: hippo: Yeah, if you still get enough money to get by and don't have expensive hobbies or other fixed costs that can work out well
[ambrus]: ah good. I pay only rent too. but that still costs significant money.
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, but that is already budgeted for
