in thread Perl oddities

No, you don't need the +:
print map {"$_",}, qw/foo bar/
works as well, although you need more characters. I don't think there is any case in Perl where you need unary minus for disambiguation where you can't disambiguate in another way using 2 or 3 other keystrokes.

Unary plus is just a convenience, not a requirement.

    Quoting is not an identity function in Perl.

    "There is no shame in being self-taught, only in not trying to learn in the first place." -- Atrus, Myst: The Book of D'ni.

      Quoting is not an identity function in Perl.

      It's not, but if you're going to use them as hash keys, they get quoted anyway:

      perl -MDevel::Peek -e '$a = 1; Dump ($a); %a = map +{$_}, $a; Dump ($a +)' SV = IV(0x8192edc) at 0x8191dc4 REFCNT = 1 FLAGS = (IOK,pIOK) IV = 1 SV = PVIV(0x8184888) at 0x8191dc4 REFCNT = 1 FLAGS = (IOK,POK,pIOK,pPOK) IV = 1 PV = 0x818b5b8 "1"\0 CUR = 1 LEN = 2

      perl -MDevel::Peek -e '$a = 1; Dump ($a); %a = map {"$_",}, $a; Dump ( +$a)' SV = IV(0x8192edc) at 0x8191dc4 REFCNT = 1 FLAGS = (IOK,pIOK) IV = 1 SV = PVIV(0x8184888) at 0x8191dc4 REFCNT = 1 FLAGS = (IOK,POK,pIOK,pPOK) IV = 1 PV = 0x818b5b8 "1"\0 CUR = 1 LEN = 2
      No difference.

[karlgoethebier]: or no education?
[choroba]: their = his or her
[Discipulus]: anyway once I proposed an automatic font decrease for post below -1, stepping every 5 votes: i'm still thinks it's a good idea but dunno if feasible
[shmem]: ...emulated dual in english
[shmem]: Discipulus: has that been in the CB? or in a PM node proper? for the latter case, can you provide the ID?
[Discipulus]: you seriously can use their in this way in eng?
[Corion]: Meh. $effin_bad_system has an interface breakdown and then loads events in parallel with events overtaking one another instead of being processed sequentially
[shmem]: Discipulus: dunno, but we do all the time ^^
[choroba]: Discipulus I was taught so by a Londoner
[shmem]: Corion: very clear case of missing sequence number
