what I think you're getting at is that if a local variable isn't declared within any existing block, then it will treat the current file as a block.

That's not my point at all. Reread what I've written and see my other replies in this thread.

The first opening curly brace to the closing curly brace of a "for" loop is a block.

Yes, so you have to put the stuff that should be declared for it outside it, otherwise it will be declared in it, and that would be wrong, because what wouldn't declare something for the whole block.

As for the local ($1, $2) = ($1, $2); issue: Yes, is "works", but it doesn't do what you want. Try this: 'a' =~ /(.)/; local $1 = 'b'; print $1. It prints 'a' and not 'b'. Experiment some with Devel::Peek and you'll see why doing "local $1 = $1" doesn't do what you want.

    [ambrus]: That's what some of the "Black Friday" sales are about.
    [Corion]: ambrus: Well, usually, these people don't have in their description "mail me at dodgy_reseller # g m a i l | co m" , replace the "#" by "@" :)
    [Corion]: Oh, and the "o" in "com" is a zero
    choroba orders a camera from Ole Scæmmer
    [ambrus]: Corion: ah. that's different. the ones I mean are selling at reputable sites like ebay that usually filters scammers out pretty quickly (as well as filters a lot of legitimate users who then get annoyed that the biggest providers exclude them)
    [Corion]: ambrus: Yeah, if you provide the plausible story of "got it as a gift", buying that via Ebay might somewhat work. But I consider Ebay another harbor of scammers ;)
