in thread Can't Reference a Sub by Variable when using Strict

Creating symbolic references to subroutines is quite valid under strictures e.g

use strict; sub foo { print "It's all good."; } my $subref = \&{ "foo" }; &$subref; __output__ It's all good.

    That's a bug not a feature :-)

    C:\>perl -MO=Deparse test.pl sub foo { print q[It's all good.]; } my $subref = \&{'foo';}; &$subref;
