Overriding prototypes is not all it does!

sub foo { print "Called foo(" . join(',', @_) . ")\n"; } sub bar { print "Called bar(" . join(',', @_) . ")\n"; print "foo(); : "; foo(); print "&foo; : "; &foo; } bar(1,2,3);

Enoch was right!
Enjoy the last years of Rome.

    Also don't forget &foo() which overrides prototypes without the effect of passing along the caller's @_.

    perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
