[GotToBTru]is &;@ magic? or is it parseable as written?
[LanX]what?
[LanX]$; exists, so does the glob
[GotToBTru]$; is "useful for emulating multi-dimensional arrays in Perl4"
[LanX]i.e. &; is parsable
[LanX]it's sometimes useful in P5 too
[LanX]but I don't understand the question...
[GotToBTru]okay, I see what it does
[GotToBTru]you;ve answered it .. the expression is meant to be evaluated as written, it is not a symbol for a special operation
[LanX]'&;@' is a parsing error
[GotToBTru]by itself, yes, but used in sub pre(&;@) not so
[LanX]&; is interpreted as a function call, but the @ has no meaning
[LanX]OH
[LanX]you are talking about signatures?
[GotToBTru]yes, it turns out I am
[LanX]http://perldoc.perl.org/perlsub.html#Prototypes
[GotToBTru]that page, strangely enough, never mentions that construct
[LanX]; is for optional prototypes
[LanX]& is codeblock @ array
[GotToBTru]okay, that is there in the text, not in literal use in any of the examples
[GotToBTru]the text suggest it is redundant before @
[LanX]propably ... I also notice new stuff
