You are right, triple ampersand parses as "boolean and" followed by a "subroutine call sigil". Too bad.

    The odds of there being code in the wild that does $a&&&foo() with no space seem pretty slim to me. It even seems rather unlikely in an obfu. Not that I have personally witnessed p5p be swayed by such arguments before.

    The odds of "$a &&& $b" being non-broken code in the wild seems even slimmer.
