Would you say that &bar is a closure?
Yes, it is, according to the standard definition.

OTOH, there needs to be a term for "subroutine which is created at run time via the sub operator and thus may have bindings to lexicals which outlive the names of those lexicals"...

    Hm. I'd call them "non-trivial closures" or, if I were to use a term from the Perl internals, "cloning closures".

    And, BTW: "Sorry about that, merlyn."
