Good point. I'd still say that it has a bit of #1 due to the magic of %ENV, but it is true that it is also creating a temporary value for a hash element. The @ARGV example, however, was using "normal" localization and affected the whole array.

[thezip]: I'll try the --notest arg first when I get back from meetings (after lunch).
[thezip]: Thanks guys for your comments! :-)
[1nickt]: Quick survey: has anyone used or even heard of autobox?
[Corion]: thezip: I would expect some (fancier?) numeric formatting to fail from these test failures
[1nickt]: ( Sometimes when idle I browse remote corners of the code repo at $work ... usually this yields knowledge of projects to decline and coworkers to avoid ... )
[LanX]: sure
[Corion]: 1nickt: Finding autobox in production would give me pause, yes
[LanX]: efficient survey
[MidLifeXis]: And under MINGW64_NT-6.1 MYHOST 2.6.0(0.304/5/3) 2016-09-09 09:46 x86_64 Msys there seem to be issues with escapes in external build tool calls.
