in thread scalar(*main::{VALUE}) appears to return a string rather than a value?

ok I think I see this now

print qq{caret is the special variable symbol for $^}.$/; ALTERPIDSYM: { local $main::{'$'} = q{^}; my $grapplehook = 'tri'; print ${'::$'}; print q{?},$grapplehook; }; print ${ $main::{'$'} }; exit 0;

{local ${$main::{q<$>}=q<Coyote>}=q<heheh>;$^=${main::{q<$>}},$$;print($^);}
