That's not how context works at all

I'm baffled. So you are telling me that I don't know about context in Perl?

  • %{ ... } evaluates to a hash or a list.

And how, pray, is the "or" resolved? There.

Anyways, you are right. Im sick of tennis match like conversations. I'm not here to win.

perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'

    I can't comment on what you know, just on what you say.

    Context doesn't cause values to be coerced. Operators return different values based on the context. That's why $x = (4,5,6); and @a = (4,5,6); $x = @a; result in different values in $x.

    And how, pray, is the "or" resolved? There.

    I'm not sure what the means. Are you asking how it's determined when %... evaluates to a hash and when %... evaluates to a list? It's based on the operator that parses it. e.g. keys(%foo) or \%foo vs print(%foo).
