in thread In need of guidance

I am only asking for wisdom for a starting perl programmer, i don't think i deserve that reply, but maybe then I'm doing something wrong.

I'm an experienced perl programmer. The first thing I do is JFGI. It should be an instinct. You can't be an expert on every single field of computing, but then you don't have to be, you just have to search.

[LanX]: '&;@' is a parsing error
[GotToBTru]: by itself, yes, but used in sub pre(&;@) not so
[LanX]: &; is interpreted as a function call, but the @ has no meaning
[LanX]: OH
[LanX]: you are talking about signatures?
[GotToBTru]: yes, it turns out I am
[LanX]: http://perldoc. perl.org/perlsub. html#Prototypes
[GotToBTru]: that page, strangely enough, never mentions that construct
[LanX]: ; is for optional prototypes
[LanX]: & is codeblock @ array
