jflevi has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I feel kinda stupid asking this, but it has bugged me for a long time.
I learned what I know of Perl by myself, with the help of a few books (the Llama really got me started), so I have no clue as how to "pronounce" (in English) things like $somescalar, @odds, $_, etc.
Do you say "dollar sign somescalar", "at odds", "dollar sign underscore" ? These lenghty expressions seem un-perly to me.
