in thread conditional self-execution

An entire category of entities just for three pseudo-constants, for hysterical purposes thanks to C legacy. Yeah. I think that qualifies as a wart on the language.

. . . but I still do love my Perl so. Thanks again.

    I personally believe you may be glad to know -just for the record- that in full respect to the principle of least surprise, in Perl 6 "this kinda things" will actually be made regular variables of an appropriate namespace, with an appropriate sigil, and an appropriate twigil.

    If you can't understand the incipit, then please check the IPB Campaign.
