LVALUE refsby BrowserUk (Pope)
|on Feb 13, 2003 at 17:11 UTC||Need Help??|
BrowserUk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
If I do
Which is what I expected but if I try
and if I do
Which I think indicates that there is only one LVALUE per string. I tried to read the source pp.c(pp_substr) to confirm this, but I'm not familiar enough with perlguts to interpret what I read.
Can anyone confirm my conclusion?
Examine what is said, not who speaks.
