Unfortunately, there isn't an overload::NumVal to match overload::StrVal (unless I'm missing something somewhere ;-)

I think the best way to do this is Scalar::Util::refaddr. And its much faster than parsing overload::StrVal.

But it isn't core (at 5.6 anyway)

    You mindreader you! I was just on my way to update the node after discovered refaddr!.

    It's much faster than my reblessing hack too.


    Update: It isn't much faster. In fact, it's almost exactly the same as my quick hack. Goodness knows what I wrote in my benchmark script :-)

    Another update: It is much faster if you have the XS version. It isn't if you don't :-)
