in reply to Hidden Secrets of PERL

I'd call you example pitfall or trap for the unwary rather than a hidden treasure. It's normal behaviour, and no, there is no such book - there's the perl documentation. Perl just is like that, it's all about context.

Oh, wait - if you seek odd things, unexpected behaviour and such, have a look at The Golf Book.

_($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q·/)Oo.  G°\        /
                              /\_¯/(q    /
