I've actually been partial to the term "clob" since the moment I came up with the idea — the first two letters of each word in the term "closure object". It hadn't occurred to me to invent a whole new jargon for it. That'd be fun, and probably kind of effective if I were to attempt to market the whole idea and sell books about it, but I'm a long way from that right now.

Let's call them "clobs" for now. More terminology can come later, when I figure out what the specific actions are that would be described by the terms.

print substr("Just another Perl hacker", 0, -2);

    Gah! No, no, please let us by all means not call them clobs. ;-)

      Whoops, I hadn't thought of that. Maybe I'll have to come up with a different term. I guess "closure-object" will have to suffice in the meantime.
