Safe, while perhaps not the best example, does allow execution without the risk of your program dieing. I guess it's for the folks who have something against eval.

I believe that the source code to life is written in Perl :-)

    Um, no, eval prevents dieing, Safe prevents ops you don't allow (in theory) like exit, system, etc

      Safe can -- if (ab)used correctly -- prevent your program from dieing as well.

        Safe can prevent die from being called, but not dying in general, or even due to "bad" derefs.

        If you wanted to change the behaviour of `->`, especially in a lexical scope, you could use an opcode checker. The autovivification pragma is an example of such.
