I didn't try &lc. I tried \&lc. (Is the backslash showing up?) I tried to take the reference of lc, because I thought (mistakenly) that built-ins and subroutines could be treated the same way.

    Yes, the backslash came through. But taking a ref to a sub only works if there's a sub there to take a ref to. The idea of \&lc reminds me of that famous description of Oakland: ``There's no `there' there.''
