( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I think saying "lexical (my), and dynamic (use vars, our (with caveats), undeclared (except under use strict), all subs, direct playing with globs (see below), filehandles/dirhandles, and formats)" would do the trick. You might just want to say "(all others)" instead of listing all of those.

Also, more importantly, you've got a terminology mismatch in the whole document: symbol tables aren't like hashes, they are hashes. %main:: (AKA %::, which you might want to mention explicitly) is a hash. *main::{somevar} isn't a hash, it's a hash element, which contains a glob, which is like a hash in many ways.

    [Corion]: Hi choroba, Discipulus!
    [Corion]: Yesterday I've been mulling over how to best generate HTTP requests from permutations of values but I haven't found a nice API for passing in the "template" of the HTTP request yet. I guess I'll have to do a SoPW for that
    [Corion]: The API itself will basically be my $iter = generate_http_requ ests(method => 'GET', url => '/settings/:name', headers => ???, get_params => ['foo','bar']), but I'm not sure how to parametrize values in the headers and how to specify lists of ...
    [choroba]: On the other hand, lots of options to receive the requests :-)
    [Corion]: ... values to be used. For example, I think for headers, one would want to have various kinds of Content-Encoding headers, but for the get_parameters one would have various kinds of Bobby Tables
    [choroba]: What about [metadoc:// Algorithm::Loops]?
    [Corion]: choroba: Yeah, but handing off the request to Dancer,Plack, Mojolicious,LWP is easy once I have the data filled into some structure ;))
    [choroba]: Algorithm::Loops
    [Corion]: choroba: I'm using that to generate the permutations, but I don't know how the user can pass the intended values to my function in a sane way
    [Corion]: I have a prototype that permutes the get_parameters, but the values used for the get parameters should be different from the values used for the headers and potentially for parts of the URL
