in reply to Why does Perl have typeglobs?

So, I basically got the answer. Typeglobs are what they are because Perl can have different values associated with a single identifier. And Perl is that way because Larry Wall wanted it to be like that. That's clear enough now.

    If you had posted this response with a user name I would happily up-vote it, it is a good response to the people who have replied to you. But I see no point in wasting a vote on the Anonymous Monk. (And if someone knows of a good reason to do so I'll listen.)

      The rulesruels of the game are, ++upvote nodes you like, not people you like ... PerlMonks FAQ -> How should I spend my votes? -- General Voting Guidelines

      There is a quote in a signature around: Examine what is said not who speaks

      It is understandable not to spend votes thank-you/summary type of nodes (like the case here), but the votes are never wasted on good nodes

      Hi :)

        Fair enough, but I prefer to give votes to nodes by people who can benefit from it (especially newer Monks.)
