I think you're wrong there. Postincrement only works different for strings if they start with a letter. For strings like "199" it makes no difference: you just get 200. And other strings apparently are converted to a number first, as $x = "2A"; $x++ produces 3.
$ perl -E '$x = $y = "A3"; $y + 0; $x++; $y++; say "$x $y"' A4 1 $
The difference is, $y has an integer (as well as a string value), where $x doesn't. And hence, the post-increment value differs.
