Howdy taint,

I like your idea! I guess in my mind all the things forbidden in The Low-Magic Perl Commandments are "grey magic" (neutral) at best and "black magic" (bad) at worst.

Although the forthcoming "use magic;" and "no magic;" pragmas are seemingly binary in nature, in reality there is still a small amount of magic kept in RPerl, thus the term "Low-Magic Perl". I consider all the magic remaining to be "white magic" (good), such as memory management, garbage collection, hash data types, Perl's list of builtins, and other DWIM-like features. So the "Low-Magic" of "Low-Magic Perl" is "white magic".

:-)

DISCLAIMER: Nothing in this message should be considered canon, see RPerl.org for all things official.

Perling,
~ Will the Chill

    "no magic;" pragma
    An alternative name would be:
    use restricted;
      smls,

      I like your idea!
