Right. What to do with the token is determined at the read head. I still do not see how this is a perl specific problem, as the "/" operator has to be read and computed, what happens with it 5 minutes from now is fortune telling. Not a perl specific problem.

    Does that mean you think the tokeniser produces a <"/" operator> token? It doesn't. There's no such thing. The tokeniser produces either a regexp pattern token (which is a term) or a division operator token when faced with "/" in the input stream.

[virtualsue]: I have made a post for the first time in ... years
[marto]: hey virtualsue!
Eily thought about Neko Case first, something might be wrong with my brain's wiring
[virtualsue]: I recommended dbic-migration even though I am having trouble with it this week. It might be my fault.
[ambrus]: wow! I haven't seen you here for a long time, virtualsue
virtualsue waves back
[Eily]: it would have been 2 years in 2 weeks actually. And welcome back virtualsue :)
[Corion]: I think I saw virtualsue more recently in person than online :-D
[virtualsue]: It's true that there was a bigger gap between the 2 yr old post and the one before it
[ambrus]: yes, I probably just didn't see you two years ago, because I'm not in perlmonks much
