Addendum to explain what the &x2 call does

> Subroutines may be called recursively. If a subroutine is called using the & form, the argument list is optional, and if omitted, no @_ array is set up for the subroutine: the @_ array at the time of the call is visible to subroutine instead. This is an efficiency mechanism that new users may wish to avoid.

    To you and choroba, thanks for the example(s). I completely forgot about the '&' case.

    Thanks!
