in reply to Seemingly odd behavior of sequence

If you're curious how Perl parses an expression--perhaps for debugging purposes or just for the pure joy of it on a rainy afternoon--you can use the module B::Deparse at the command line as follows:

perl -MO=Deparse,-p -e 'print 0..9 x 2, "\n";'

Output:

print((0 .. (9 x 2)), "\n"); -e syntax OK

Note that the output echoes oiskuu's spot-on assessment of your expression's evaluation.

      You're most welcome, jar00n!
