in thread Of Symbol Tables and Globs

*glob{FORMAT} is not mentioned in my copy of perlref where this {THING} syntax is described.

Was that added later? What version? What would you assign it to?

It also notes that the {IO} slot comingles two distinct values, the file handle and directory handle.

    I believe the FORMAT slot has been present since the birth of typeglobs, but I don't have the source code to prove it. It's like the IO slot -- you can't really assign to it directly. (Since formats are associated strongly with filehandles, it makes a certain amount of sense.)

[cbeckley]: I have a functioning module I use to spawn sets of commands across multiple servers.
[cbeckley]: It's nascent, and probably looks like baby Perl to the veterans.
[cbeckley]: I have several questions about it's future development. But it seems like a lot of code to put in a sopw.
[cbeckley]: Should I put the module and example calling code in cufp, and then ask questions in sopw?
[haukex]: You can put it in SOPW, but use <readmore> tags
[haukex]: Also you might want to label it "code review"
