      &NAME(LIST);   # Circumvent prototypes.
      &NAME;         # Makes current @_ visible to called subroutine.

      &unpack_c( $lines[$_] ) ; VERSUS unpack_c( $lines[$_] ) ;
        As the documentation said, it circumvents prototypes (if any). But the more cromulent reason is that it's the Perl4-style function call syntax which hasn't been needed for almost two decades. (And I think we all can agree on that we want to move past Perl 4.)
