Re^13: Order of evaluation/interpolation of references

Admittedly I'm pretty far off topic from the thread, but I prefer:

print "Take ", 1 + 4, "\n";

and like this even more:

printf "Take %i\n", 1 + 4;

But the prospect of a cleaner syntax to interpolate more... stuff than we currently can is interesting.

That doesn't solve the problem though:
```sub X {
state \$x;
\$x = shift;
\\$x;
}
print \${X(1)}, " ", \${X(2)}, "\n";
print \${X(1)}, " "; print \${X(2)}, "\n";
printf "%d %d\n", \${X(1)}, \${X(2)};
printf "%d ", \${X(1)}; printf "%d\n", \${X(2)};
__END__

The curse of the trivial example. Would you agree that first is a lot easier on the eyes than the latter two?:

```print "And the set contains [ { sort @a } ]\n";;
And the set contains [ brown dog fox jumps lazy over quick the the ]

printf "And the set contains [ %s ]\n", join ' ', sort @a;;
And the set contains [ brown dog fox jumps lazy over quick the the ]

print "And the set contains [ ", join( ' ', sort @a ), " ]\n";;
And the set contains [  brown dog fox jumps lazy over quick the the  ]

Even with the complication of the p5 syntax, it's still nicer to my eyes:

```print "And the set contains [ @{[ sort @a ]} ]\n";;
And the set contains [ brown dog fox jumps lazy over quick the the ]

 [Corion]: Weird - this "Install our backdoor SDK" spam is persistent. And I get the feeling it's not even automated, as it seems to be a re-forward of each mail, maybe even manually. Ah well, a quick rule in Thunderbird will move them to Spam automatically now :D [Corion]: (the "backdoor SDK" is for distributing my software with an included backdoor, not for backdooring my own machine) [marto]: ask for a trial [marto]: then trick them into running your app [marto]: once you have access, remove your email address from their system :P [shmem]: why just that email address? why filtering? [Corion]: shmem: I use email for contact, so I'd still like to receive emails from other people. Hence, I filter my email. [Corion]: marto: Sneaky :) But I think I don't want to even give them the impression that anybody reads their mail :)
