You don't like sigils?

Try this

use strict; use warnings; $,="\t"; my ($a,$b,$c); sub A() :lvalue { $a }; sub B() :lvalue { $b }; sub C() :lvalue { $c }; A = 1; B = A + 1; C = A + B; print A, B, C, B**3, sqrt(B);

    I would fire you for writing code like that. Unnecessary layers of having to align variables to functions. You sir, are a grade A jerk.

      OK, Donald. And a happy weekend at Mar-a-Lago.

      Furthermore I consider that Donald Trump must be impeached as soon as possible

        It's funny how you try to defend each other. That was horrible code and you know it.
