reverse $str;

That doesn't affect $str. Does this come from production or otherwise tested code?!

Juerd # { site => 'juerd.nl', plp_site => 'plp.juerd.nl', do_not_use => 'spamtrap' }

    Have another look. This thead is discussing bad code. (I was confused a little a first too.) reverse $str not doing anything is exactly the point.

      This thead is discussing bad code.

      That I gathered. I was wondering where this example came from. I find it hard to believe it was encountered in the wild. Conceived examples work, but they aren't as good, IMO.

      Juerd # { site => 'juerd.nl', plp_site => 'plp.juerd.nl', do_not_use => 'spamtrap' }

      Perhaps, although even if it did work, it would be a lot less clear than a substr, IMO.
