in thread phantom subroutine parameter values

Thanks guys. I knew it was something simple... That explains why a lot of my old code doesn't have ampersands... Sucks be forced to program in tcl for a few years... rpelak

    uh?! it seems a feature! in any case i like calling with the & 'cause i spot easy subroutine's calling.

    if i understand :
    sub refinemydata { my $data = shift; &is_refined:return?&rerefine;}
    could be a valid syntax too ?
    something new

      The ampersand is functional, not decorative. &func(args) is not the same as func(args). The function's prototype is ignored in the former. And &func, &func() and func() are all different. @_ is left untouched by the first.
