in reply to Re^5: Shouldn't references be readonly?
in thread Shouldn't LITERAL references be readonly? (updated)

My complaint is primarily about aliases, where I don't understand why Perl complains about when overwriting an alias to 1 but not one to [ 1,2,3,$x] (see examples in my OP especially the update)

Both are literal constructs unbound to any named variable.

I'm NOT saying that anonymous arrays -ie the content - should be immutable, but their reference.
