=head1 GV Functions

A GV is a structure which corresponds to to a Perl typeglob, ie *foo. It is a structure that holds a pointer to a scalar, an array, a hash etc, corresponding to $foo, @foo, %foo.

GVs are usually found as values in stashes (symbol table hashes) where Perl stores its global variables. =cut

    Storing package (global) variables is one of their uses, yes. How does repeating what I said add anything to the conversation?

      What you said? Your memory is deluding you again.

      In case you hadn't noticed, it is a quote from an authoritative source.

      Until you persuade Mr. Wall to speak up and state that he named his nice, regular, clearly defined data structure after an archaic term for "an amorphous mass", I'll continue to believe the evidence that you had no clue what 'glob' stood for, or even that such an (archaic) word even existed until I challenged you to define it.

      At which point you looked it up on the internet, found a definition for a word that in no way describes the entity, and ... well, the rest is history.

        You sure are lazy tonight. Lobbing accusations is so much easier that fact checking, isn't it?

        Yes, but it's not one that speaks as to what GV stands for. Or the etymology of glob for that matter, although I don't doubt that glob does come from global.

        Another flat out lie. You have no way of knowing what I did or didn't do.

        fyi, I didn't look up the term or the definition. Why would I have to look up the definition of a common word?
