But each of them knows when to eshew complicated eval-avoidance-schemes, in favour of simplicity.
And before anyone leaps to these authors defense, there is no need. String eval is a tool. Avoiding it where practical is common sense; eshewing at all costs is illogical.
I'm betting that Perl6 will retain string eval in some form.
