Well .. I use it so often, I don't even think of it as there. It's became, well ... default. It's the most useful variable in Perl, but cause I use it so much, I don't see it as a 'kewl' variable. You can't 'do' much with it. Where $\ and $" actually let you play with how things are displayed. Just like CDs where kewl and most useful for ditital media until it's so popular, it's not longer 'kewl'.

[Tux]: but I <3 the way people test here
[Tanktalus]: Tux: use sort -V to sort your perls. Looks much nicer that way ;)
[Tux]: Hmmm, pm-cb-g does not seem to accept dead-key diacriticals as all my other (perl) applications do. choroba?
[Tux]: Tanktalus this was the output of autocompletion in my tcsh
[erix]: ah, but I have different compilation- versions of Pg too, so double that: 26 * 2 = more than 50 :P
[Tanktalus]: When I showed one of my coworkers my perl list, he told me that my sort routine was broken when 5.8.8 showed up after 5.26.0 ... which made me investigate sort, which is when I found this option :)
erix atm running billion row table replication (pg-)tests...
