ikegami: no one has mentioned a system or version where the arguments are evaluated in any order other than left-to-right
My answer to the OP was completely wrong,
which is what I found out after investigating
into the topic.
Thats another case where prejudice brings ill-fated conclusions.
One simple look into perl -MO=Bblock thisprog.pl reveals

int the perl. Sorry, I was mistaken by the way one
"programs" Perl in C via its interfaces.
Thanks to all people who helped clearing this up.
I will eventually make an addendum to my first post.
