in thread Small examples of string eval

I was just going to reply that MJD's HOP also has a few legitimate uses of string eval. As you said it's a tool, a powerful tool, and as such it should be used with great caution.

I really hope Perl 6 won't drop the string eval, having it IMHO is essential to any dynamic language.
