in thread Perl oddities

Having the flexibility to think in the problem space rather than the solution space is enjoyable

Yes, and this is why some oddities may even help. The fact that ' ' as first argument to split is slightly different than / / is certainly an oddity. But useful. The fact that // has a specific meaning, but not if it's used as a first argument to split, is also an oddity. But useful.

Not every oddity is evil.
