in thread XS: returning a 64-bit unsigned int?

How many of those examples of magical scalars could be encountered, embedded within an ordinary array?

By definition, isn't an ordinary array one that's not special?

Can you imagine the utility of passing @ISA (or any of the other special arrays) into a subroutine that is going to populate the passed array with random integers?

Wow! You got me! Oh wait, it was already decided that magic wouldn't be checked in this case.

I resent your false insinuations.

[stevieb]: use metamod::DateTime. Don't fsck around. Seriously. As someone who's done sensitive date/time stuff, don't roll your own. Use what is available and known stable. Do not guess.
[stevieb]: Date::Time even
[stevieb]: ffs I can't make DateTime link properly, so there.
