My reading of perlop has me convinced that this is an unintended syntactic feature.

And that's exactly what it is. When using the arrow, Perl will see whatever is left of it as a reference. Including if you have something like @l or %h.

Note that you will get the warning
Using an array as a reference is deprecated
in Perl 5.8.0.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr

    [Cow1337killr]: <p>stevieb, you should leave an insightful comment at https://plugins. jetbrains.com/ idea/plugin/7796- perl</p>
    [Cow1337killr]: (Oops. HTML paragraph markup not needed.)
    [stevieb]: Cow1337killr yeah, you're probably right. I have communicated to the author directly, and here on his threads. It's a tremenous setup. With Devel::Camelcadedb , you get full perl debug support too
    [stevieb]: so now I can use CLion with the Perl plugin and have a single IDE for Perl/C/C++. It'll make writing C/XS dists much easier
    [stevieb]: Python too, but I leave work at work
