in reply to Re^5: Perl is not Dynamically Parseable
in thread Perl is not Dynamically Parseable
it's impossible to predict the meaning Perl will assign to code in some circumstances
That's what I thought you must have meant. I guess we have different working definitions of what "deterministic" means.
In this case, one could even argue that it's not really a matter of determining what meaning Perl assigns to some code, but a matter of determining whether Perl will get around to assigning meaning to some code.
