in thread The sort of fiction you're most likely to find me reading:

I'm so glad someone else does this. I re-read LoTR without fail every year. Same with Dune (all of those by the original author, I'm not interested in subsequent publications by his son). Same with HHGTTG. Same with Dicken's "A Christmas Carol" every Christmas morning. I love the fact I get so many re-reads out of books - I'm not one of these people who reads them once and never again. If you don't go back to your books and re-read them you miss so much! Still to this day, every time I read HHGTTG I find a sentence or something that I've just never seen/fully appreciated before... Books for me are real value for money :)

[1nickt]: \my %foo = { bar => 1 }; say $foo{bar};
[Corion]: 1nickt: Would be great, especially for naming parameters in @_.
[Corion]: When you pass an arrayref, you get to treat it like a local array. But then, I'm cautious with the experimental features, because just when I thought function signatures were a set thing, there is a proposal to use sub [ $foo, $bar ] { ... } to ...
[Corion]: ... declare the parameters, instead of the more common sub ($foo, $bar) { ... }
