  • $? and $CHILD_ERROR
  • $^C and $COMPILING
  • $^T and $BASETIME

are all obscure. If you don't know that Perl has a list separator concept, the name $LIST_SEPARATOR leaves you to look everywhere for its meaning. I would not know $^I's meaning, but by understanding the naming convention, I know it is a token defined in perlvar; in some cases that may be enough to guess/remember its meaning because I don't need to consider concepts that come from the

  • host system, -- or is it about porting
  • or a specialty domain. -- or a bit of arcana from some lib
