in thread lhs substr(): refs vs. scalars

Actually, the segment ref's may be valuable for me. I'm using a pool of fixed buffers that get populated with binary msgs whose headers have a fixed format. So if I grab ref's to the header fields of interest when the buffers are created, my logic may be a bit simpler, and hopefully faster (tho I still need to pack/unpack(), so it may not be worth the effort).

But still very good to know!
