Numification of stringsby LanX (Chancellor)
|on Aug 02, 2010 at 00:35 UTC||Need Help??|
LanX has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
what exactly is the application/motivation/benefit for the way perl numifies strings?
BTW: This behaviour seems only to be documented for unary - in perlop
Isn't this behaviour mainly hiding ugly bugs?
