1) if there are links, explore them :) 2) make links obviou 3) hi

Perl 5's references are fine, but sometimes dereferencing them is not. postfix dereference syntax - nntp.perl.org

Also, where do we stop? http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2013/08/msg205996.html

You know, I have been so consumed with faith in this feature for years that I felt it could just drop right in. http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2013/08/msg206931.html

We really donít have much grounds for confidence. http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2013/08/msg206940.html

I'd say that any feature that is beyond trivial should initially be marked experimental. http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2013/08/msg206938.html

I know you put a lot of effort into this one so I am sorry to say this, but I am pretty sure we will regret adding this syntax. http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2013/08/msg206034.html

It's bound to cause painful confusion. http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2013/08/msg206041.html

It's all the same problem we ran into with auto-dereferencing "keys $r". http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2013/08/msg206051.html

I can't help but think "brainfuck autobox"

I agree with Johan and Brad. It appears we're adding ugly syntax and a maintenance burden for something that I would probably never use. http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2013/08/msg206022.html

What's the chance we might just reverse the arrow for postfix dereference? http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2013/08/msg206663.html

https://metacpan.org/author/DMCBRIDE

It breaks the original model of sigils completely. http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2013/08/msg206038.html

Yes, and that works for you. However, perl isn't just for you ;) http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2013/08/msg206082.html

Thanks, so this proposal will make a lie out of every Camel book in existence. http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2013/08/msg206045.html

I think it complicates an already complex subject without adding that much benefit. http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2013/08/msg206007.html

Man, if I ever thought an *explicit* request for opinions was needed on p5p, I'd check my prescription. ;) http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2013/07/msg204196.html

$arrayRef->>flatten; http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2013/07/msg204165.html

$maybe_object->CORE::flatten; http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2013/07/msg204166.html

say for $h->^keys->^sort; http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2013/07/msg204178.html

Do you remember the conditional-dereference operator that was bikeshedded to oblivion? http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2013/07/msg204070.html

Why Should I Care What Color the Bikeshed Is? / Parkinson's law of triviality
