in reply to Re^3: 'require/use' scoping ("scope")
in thread 'require/use' scoping

local has nothing to do with the scope of the variable...(snip)...the time it makes any sense is in lexical scoping...it's how it's used in the perl documentation, which doesn't have any other scope to talk about...(snip)...read Dominus's Coping with Scoping.

See perldoc -q "dynamic and lexical"

Also, in Dominus' addendum article Seven Useful Uses of Local there's some stuff on dynamic scoping.

Update: also (on an unrelated note), in your node above, the comment in this line is incorrect (as pointed out by tye in the CB):

require "lib/Foo.pm"; # no @INC searching!

[Eily]: Maybe the puns in his dialogues were somehow kept through translation, but I can tell he lost his accent
[LanX]: qui?
[Eily]: Astérix
1nickt gives up on finding a Perl YAML parser that supports hash merging. In 2017.
[LanX]: Oh yes true, he lost his accent! xD
[Eily]: and since his name is a modified version of astérisque (asterisk), which is a typographical symbol, I think it's even funnier that he would lose a diacritic
[Eily]: the pun doesn't work so well with "he lost a diacritic" though :P
[LanX]: Obelix might offer to find it again ...
