in thread OO-call bug uncovered & autovivified functions: defined? exists?

I don't think it makes semantic sense for exists to be applied to functions.

Nonetheless there are semantics for it.

sub E; # exists, but not defined sub D { 1 }; # exists _and_ defined # sub N does _not_ exist $\="\n"; print exists(&N) ? "N exists" : "N doesn't exist"; print exists(&E) ? "E exists" : "E doesn't exist"; print exists(&D) ? "D exists" : "D doesn't exist"; print defined(&N) ? "N is defined" : "N is not defined"; print defined(&E) ? "E is defined" : "E is not defined"; print defined(&D) ? "D is defined" : "D is not defined"; __END__ N doesn't exist E exists D exists N is not defined E is not defined D is defined

print "Just another Perl ${\(trickster and hacker)},"
The Sidhekin proves Sidhe did it!

[atcroft]: stevieb: Apparently it was contagious....
[atcroft]: james28909: Make both hands into fists, place them together (with thumbs concealed), and every knuckle is a month (starting with Jan.) has 31 days, every dip (between knuckles) does not....
[atcroft]: (And Feb. is the odd case, because it is 28, unless it is a year divisible by 4, or if it is divisible by both 100 and 400 (at which point it is 29).)
[james28909]: i know but scroll through your calendar on your computer.
[james28909]: i thiught you were going to say make both hands into a fist and puch yourself in the face
[atcroft]: .oO(Sorry, I probably should have said take two normal hands....)
[atcroft]: james28909: No, unless you are a politician, I wouldn't say that (and even if you are, I still probably wouldn't say that).
[james28909]: i mean how hard can it be? its just subtracting days lol
