in thread Perl 5 Optimizing Compiler, Part 9: RPerl.org & The Low-Magic Perl Commandments
No it doesn't. The point is that you can't compile a piece of code without magic, because the magic may come from the outside. So even if YOU do follow all those commandments, someone else might not. The result is that even if you do follow all those commandments to the letter, the amount of code that may be safely compiled in a no-magic mode is gonna be fairly small.
Enoch was right!
Enjoy the last years of Rome.
