in thread Win32, fork and XS globals

Of course it's not allocated statically. It can't be both static and per-interpreter.

"_" represents the even less visible ",", so complaints of visibility are silly.

"d", "a" and "p" stand for "declare", "argument" and "parameter", and are used throughout the API just like "SV". The pattern is documented. There's a point as uses grows where short and convenient becomes more convenient than crystal clarity, and the use of "d", "a" and "p" are justified or nearly justified by this (like $_ is).

    Why not address your replies to the person asking the question, cos I already know this stuff.


    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

      I was contradicting you. If you knew what I said, then why did you say the opposite?!?!?

        Nothing you said, contradicted anything I said.
