in thread Autoloading and anonymous subs

You are calling an undefined coderef. This coderef (which isn't, being just nothing, or not existing) has no association with any package, albeit the variable holding "that nothingness" (if nothing can be something) has. Now, how should perl resolve that sensibly? There's no package, there's no code, there's no sub. Hence the default package (main), and as last resort, AUTOLOAD.

The documentation is implicit in perlsub, perlref, ...

--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}
