in reply to Burned by precedence rules

My motto is "Even when *not* in doubt, parenthesize". There are just too many subtle ways to get caught by unexpected behavior. Some of these bugs are hard to see, because of *course* that expression evaluates this way - what other way could it be? When Perl disagrees, i am often seriously frustrated trying to track these errors down.
