I could buy that weaseling out if you had said those things in the order in which I had quoted them. But the first thing you said about compile/run time was:

because all contextual effects occur at compile time, never at run time

So forget my complaint about your subsequenty statement (which I find misleading but can be awkwardly interpretted as "correct" as you note, especially if you ignore the above phrase).

You could claim that contexts are created at compile time but the effects of those contexts clearly must at least sometimes be applied at run time (since contexts get passed in to subroutines) and, in current versions of Perl, most if not all contextual effects occur at run time (nearly the opposite of what you claimed).

[marto]: 1nickt, glad to hear it, I'm sure you'll bring improvements to their stack in due course ;)
[1nickt]: Just trying to adjust to a new culture. Better doc than I am used to , but quite a bit more Agiley meta-bullshit; at least half a dozen meetings a week, strict "sprint" schedule etc. I'll adjust. And I hope to just switch off after the "scrum" each day at
[1nickt]: ... the end of the afternoon. marto How are you, snowed in? Mum and Dad expecting snow today in Surrey. (Have 5" on the ground here in NJ. And my son's high school in SOCal closed until after Xmas due to fires.)
[Corion]: 1nickt: In a sense the meta-bullshit might even be beneficial to you as you get to hear the cow-orkers talk (or not talk) about the issues you perceive. I think Agile is mostly about the meta ;)
[Corion]: 1nickt: On Sunday maybe 10cm of snow fell, and the airport closed, and the trains stopped running etc :) It always comes as a surprise that snow falls here during the winter...
[marto]: 1nickt, no snow, just some ice on the roads and the usual idiocy associated with humans and driving in less than ideal conditions
