tobyink,

You are absolutely correct in every regard.

People have been talking about a "no magic;" pragma for years:

one more in support for "no magic" pragma, Anthony Baxter to Tom Christiansen, Tue 04 Mar 1997

You will note, hopefully happily so, this is already codified in The Low-Magic Perl Commandments:

LMPC #12. Thou Shalt Use Pragmata To Mark Magic Level Of Code (“use magic;” & “no magic;”)

Thank you for your moral support! :-)

Perling,
~ Will the Chill
