in thread Of Symbol Tables and Globs

I think package global is a much better description than dynamic.
I'll go with this description then. I went with dynamic because I thought it was a more symmetrical description, but I can see that it is a little too technical for a tutorial.
Because it's spelled FORMAT.
Indeed it is, but it's still totally inaccessible through native perl code i.e you can't access the glob slot at all.
## IO example open(0); print "[", *0{IO}, "]", $/; ## FORMAT example format foo = . print "[", *foo{FORMAT}, "]", $/ __output__ [IO::Handle=IO(0x80fbb0c)] []
Judging by your next paragraph, I think you need to clarify what you mean by assign directly.
Alrighty, I'll sort that out.

Thanks for the input :)
