in thread using 'my'

FWIW, those truly global variables are really all in the main package. The language parser acts as if those global variable names were prefixed with main:: if no package is specified, no matter what package directive is in scope at the time.

    I know that. An amusing side-effect is that if someone mistakenly tries to throw an our on, say, $_ and they are in any package other than main::, it will not work as they expect.

    This might be considered a bug.

[marioroy]: Discipulus Hubris, that's not me :( :(, I do not know the reason, but was inspired years ago to do MCE. Back then made a promise that I would hang in there no matter the difficulties or hurdles along the way. This is the journey that is almost completed
[choroba]: software is never completed
[choroba]: becuase the hardware always changes beneath it, at least
[Discipulus]: yes i think I know a bit about you: if I would had the competence and the will to accomplish something like MCE.. i'd be running here and there with flags and t-shirt about.. ;=)

[Discipulus]: anyway congratulations marioroy imho your work is very good and useful
