ooops

Just reponded to an earlier post without spotting this was here too!

If I had seen this first, I wouldn't have responded to either

Now I've waste both our time but responding to both! Sorry!

    You miss the fact that all attempts where narcotics were legalized, under medical control, actually lead to a drop of the number of addicted persons. I do not mean that everything should be allowed to be sold on the streets. Pure repression does not help at all!

    Sorry if this wasn't clear.

[hippo]: For explanation, I've seen this construct in someone else's code (no names, no pack drill) and couldn't think of a situation to trigger it.
[Corion]: You'll have to look somewhere esoteric for that. Maybe some tied variable or special dualvar can also trigger that. But it's certainly not a common occurrence
[Corion]: And on 5.20, the following also outputs no find:perl -wle 'for my $x ("\x{2000}".."\ x{1fffff}") { if( $x && ! length $x ) { warn qq(<$x>); warn length $x; die } }'
[Corion]: (this time on Unix)
[hippo]: Understood. I'll have to go through the code and see if it's doing anything fancy with ties, dual-vars or non-scalars. In the end, it's probably a bug though.
[Corion]: Aaah - you should be able to do this with overload, but I would hit somebody really hard if they constructed objects that are true but the empty string, and you not knowing about the domain knowledge where this makes sense
