pobocks: the Perl internal logic and language consistency are much broader and deeper than just being about implicit context.

Like I said, when you consider together the Perl referencing/dereferencing system, together with the sigil methodology, the language becomes very powerful, clear, and unambiguous, simultaneously.

I can bring innumerous examples.

    Please do, then - although I ask that you stick to demonstrating examples where context and sigils reduce the possibility of error, as that is what I was questioning.
