You can use $s->() or &$s or &{$s}. This will not work under strict, though.

    Is there a way to do this with strict enabled?

      Yes, there are ways of fooling strict. It's simpler and clearer to just turn it off in the code in question.

      my $func_name = 'f'; my $cr = do { no strict 'refs'; \&$func_name }; say $cr->();

      You can use can to return a coderef:

      use strict; use warnings; my $doFoo = main->can ('foo'); print $doFoo ? $doFoo->() : "Can't foo\n"; sub foo { return 1; }

      Prints:

      1

[Corion]: Hi planetscape!
[stevieb]: Corion I like the groundbreaking ones (guitar players). I have the ability to pick up on sounds that are groundbreaking or specific to a person, thanks to my years of doing recording/mixing/ sampling (hip-hop mind you, but years of it...
[stevieb]: ...has honed in my skills of recognizing sound
[stevieb]: All of the early members are coming out of the woodwork today :) Hey, planetscape
[Corion]: This cover version had so much promise but the singing is underwhelming :-/
[stevieb]: erix Thanks! I dislike remakes of songs usually, but my favourite remix of guitar/weeps is Jeff Healey. I'll take a listen to yours
[planetscape]: hi stevieb!
[stonecolddevin]: also hi Corion
[Corion]: stevieb: Yeah, but I don't follow guitar players enough... I never got Prince and I don't think I could recognize his play style. I can recognize Santana and Nile Rodgers, but that's about it, and not really deep knowledge I think ;)
[stevieb]: Jeff Healey cut of My guitar gently weeps
