::MY might be what I tried to describe with %PAD stash, a dynamic symboltable for the current scope, making padwalker obsolete.

I personally believe that, as a side note, you may want to hyperlink to PadWalker by means of [mod://PadWalker], stressing incidentally that capitalization does matter.

And I think I can imagine what is meant lexical scoped packages, in perl 5 packages have no privacy at all, you can access them from everywhere. But if the packagename is scoped you may control it.

What a lexically scoped package is, after all, is clear and intuitive. But one point that perhaps I didn't stress enough is the following: if things are still like I claimed them to be, that is that lexical variables are implemented by means of a single magic package, then the latter must have a "slots" for... well, packages too, which sounded somewhat self-referential when I wrote my previous post. On a second thought, though, not just as much... More precisely, I don't see any issue with this circumstance any more. I don't know what I was thinking: anyway, before spending even the slightest braindrop on the subject, I'd like someone who knows better to pinpoint the key elements of it, which we just surfaced here.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
