Humbug. If your function API isn't explicitely saying it's using the current value of $", then it shouldn't use its current value.

Do not assume people haven't touched it. They have every right to, without having to appologize for it, to you.

    Keep cool. I didn't publish any function API, but I might do so.

    Anyways, you're right in "counting on the default value", and in production use $" should be localized. I just didn't find it being necessary in the context of this thread.

    --shmem

    _($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q·/)Oo.  G°\        /
                                  /\_¯/(q    /
    ----------------------------  \__(m.====·.(_("always off the crowd"))."·
    ");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}
