Great understanding!

say "Product is @{[$number * $multiplier]}"; ^ ^ ^ ^ | | | | | | | + - EXPRESSION | | + - reference | + - dereference + - interpolate

    It's such a common combination of operations that it's even got a name: the baby cart.

    perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

      Excellent, tobyink! I enjoy what it says there:

      Discovered by Larry Wall, 1994.

      It's the Discovered part that's intriguing...

        A number of Perl's "features" are actually bugs that were discovered, found to be useful and have been documented and carefully preserved. One that springs to mind is that s/.../.../ee evaluates twice, s/.../.../eee evaluates thrice, etc.

        I have a feeling that the baby cart is one of these.

        perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
