in reply to Perl is psychic?!

This introduces several new ideas to me, so I played with it for more than a quarter hour, at a console command-line. I tried in 5.005_003 and in 5.6, evaluating a second eval(), getting the same behavior as for the first eval(). I guess it clarifies the behavior, and hopefully it's contributory to an interesting thread.

> perl -wle ' q(foo) =~ m/.*/; eval <>;' print $&; q(snarf) =~ m/.*/ ; eval <>; #prints 'foo', not 'snarf' and waits for input;

And, I think this is amusing:

> perl -le ' my $incr = 0; q( print $incr++, $& and " stew" =~ /.*/ and eval $& until $incr > 10) + =~ /.*/; eval <>;' eval $&; # prints '0 ( guesswhat) '..'10 stew' (versions differ on +-w)
