in thread A vexing list vs. scalar context question.

Perhaps ref() should return an overloaded string that returns true when compared to both the underlying reference type and the class owning the object?
Why? That's what UNIVERSAL::isa() is for. Or should the return value from ref() be an overloaded string that returns true when compared to the underlying reference type, or the class owning the object, or any of the super classes of the class owning the object? That seems an unnecessarily complicated solution to a problem that has already been solved.

[stevieb]: I advised the OP that a possible workaround would be to add a version function/flag that displays the required copyright/license info instead
[Marshall]: Darn! I'll look at the thread. Must not be updatinga byte count somewhere. The .exe format is a complex critter.
[stevieb]: that way, it's still "hard coded" into the exe at least, despite not being visible via Properties
[Marshall]: I also looked into PerlApp from Active State, but they don't sell their Dev Kit independent of a very expensive ($1,200) per year license anymore.
[Corion]: I would assume that the PE format hasn't changed that much since the days of yore, but it seems that I would be wrong in that assumption
[Marshall]: When I bought my copy 15+ years ago, it was just a couple hundred bucks.
[Marshall]: I looked at MS specs for PE format and I didn't see any changes in last decade, but evidenly that would be wrong.
