No, you've completely missed kaif's point. You cannot   my %_   ever. It is illegal. By your response, your solution was to use a different variable name, not "convert the array to hash via a list form".

    Illegal? It is treated as such in the sense that it was globally reserved and thereby prevented, but until it is documented as such, it can't be called 'illegal'.

      No, it is illegal, because if you put it in a perl program, the program will not run. You get a fatal error during compilation.

      For better or worse, the Perl language (unlike most) is defined by the implementation, not by a document. If the behavior in question isn't documented, that is simply a documentation bug.

      ObDisclaimer: This refers to Perl5 (and prec.) only.

        That's like saying that what the police arrest you for defines the law rather than what is determined by the government.

        Occasionally there will be a bug in perl which shouldn't be 'fixed' in the documentation.
