in thread Unexpected behavior of function 'say'

So print FH was magic in doing so prior to 5.14?

I hate breakes in symmetry...

BTW: I checked IO::Handle , it's a normal method and features aren't checked.

sub say { @_ or croak 'usage: $io->say(ARGS)'; my $this = shift; local $\ = "\n"; print $this @_; }

Cheers Rolf

    The point of the feature is to avoid to break existing function calls. Without feature, the code the OP posted is still the very same method call as it was before 5.10, so everything is working as it should.
