in reply to Subtle omission in perlop?

I thought that meant interpretation of double quotes inside (i.e. in the contents of) the variable (in the case that it is interpreted as a pattern to be globbed.) Perhaps I've just been confused, though...Hopefully, someone will clear this up in their reply.

    No, what that paragraph is meant to mean is that angle-brackets are a double-quote context. I.e., just as variables are interpolated in double quotes, so shall they be interpolated in angle brackets (except for the case of <$foo> which is always interpretted as a readline() on the $foo filehandle)

    In fact, I don't know why the docs don't say these very words.

[Corion]: I mean, in a way it would be nicer+easier if they always where that obedient, but it's comforting to see that they are when it matters, at least for now ;)
