well thats because I'm overcompensating my German instincts to capitalize every noun ... ; )

I don't "know" better, but my intuition is to think of a namespace as of a symboltable realized as a hash of symbols and values*. And a hash may contain references of other hashes.

when you said lexvars will be realized as kind of pkgvar, you actually meant both will consistently be organised in such symboltables.

with "our" and "my" you just bind the var-symbols of the code within the actual scope to such a symboltable.

you're declaring in which "hash" the value of a symbol "$x" should be hold.

hashes can be nested and they can have lexical scope ...

just my understanding...

* "realized" in the sense of the logic but not necessarily implementation.

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.
