in thread IP addresses?

Good observations, but your guesses are completely wrong. See "Version Strings" in perldoc perldata. Looks like support for these is going away after 5.8...

perl -e '($,,@_)=("er",",\n","l Hack"," P","Just anoth"); print reverse @_;'

    Ah, version strings. I'd forgotten about those.

    It's a nice side effect that "raw" IP addresses end up getting stored like that.

    But, is it portable between big and little endian machines?
