in thread Mini-Tutorial: Working with Odd/Even Elements

The interesting thing to note is that I seem to get a magical localization of my variables.
that's the output I get
[A b] [C d] AC Now A b C d C d
"orig" and "value" are lost, so no "magical localization". but adding local
    local @{$pkg}{qw(a b)} = \(@_[0,1]);
produces
[A b] [C d] AC Now A b C d orig value

Cheers Rolf

    That's what I would have expected. Thanks for the data point. I was wondering whether there was some obscure documented reason it should behave as I was seeing.
