Perl: the Markov chain saw

Sec has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

In the source of Attribute::Handlers, I found *{$globref}{NAME}. I tried to find documentation on that, but failed.
I know about *foo{THING} in "perlref", but it only describes
$scalarref = *foo{SCALAR}; $arrayref = *ARGV{ARRAY}; $hashref = *ENV{HASH}; $coderef = *handler{CODE}; $ioref = *STDIN{IO}; $globref = *foo{GLOB};
No mention of *foo{NAME}. Can anyone show me where that is documented, and what other *foo{THING}s are defined?

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    NAME is the name of the glob, eg
    $ ./perl -le 'print *FOO{NAME}' FOO $
    Not sure why it isn't documented. Theres also FORMAT and PACKAGE.
