both “method call” and “string” are central to my question.

I covered your objections with my last sentence: Bottom line: stop going out of your way to artificially create problems.

Even if you succeed in finding a way to subvert Perl into doing this stupid thing; it won't stop it being stupid.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
