G'day eyepopslikeamosquito,

++ Marvellous paraphrasing: most impressive.

'... and contains an incorrect(!) leading space in " _".'

Given that he's requested pedantry not be overlooked, I'll just add:

  • ... and is missing the final underscore
  • ... and pointlessly and confusingly escapes the first underscore
  • ... and uses the wrong case for the first character
  • ... and, most importantly, is the only piece of code, in this entire thread, whose purpose and intent is not immediately obvious.
$ perl -e 'my ($v1, $v2) = qw{A B}; print "My answer is \"\_" . $v1 . +" _" . $v2 . "\"\n";' My answer is "_A _B"

Unfortunately, I can only downvote it once.
