in thread Of Symbol Tables and Globs

*glob{FORMAT} is not mentioned in my copy of perlref where this {THING} syntax is described.

Was that added later? What version? What would you assign it to?

It also notes that the {IO} slot comingles two distinct values, the file handle and directory handle.

    I believe the FORMAT slot has been present since the birth of typeglobs, but I don't have the source code to prove it. It's like the IO slot -- you can't really assign to it directly. (Since formats are associated strongly with filehandles, it makes a certain amount of sense.)
