in reply to The default hash - accident, coincidence or conspiracy?

The thing of interest is that %_ is accepted as a defined variable by use strict; use warnings;

use strict; use warnings; %_ = ( a => 1, b => 2 ); print $_ {"a"};

does not generate any errors or warnings. Maybe that was what OP meant by "predefined"?


Perl is Huffman encoded by design.
