in thread backtick operator

$|++ doesn't toggle the value of the variable; $|-- does. Just checked it on 5.8 and 5.10.

    Still, I find $|++ a piece of pointless cargo cult. It isn't any shorter than $|=1, and it only add negative clarity.

[1nickt]: erix unfortunately that's there favourite spot. That's why they are usually spotted crawling *up* your leg.
[erix]: ha, the tick and, as it happens, also the curator (now a professor of Paleont.)
[1nickt]: s/there/their/, ugh sorry.
[Your Mother]: Heh. The only one I ever had on me, I caught on my shin, headed north.
