Hey, reverse() on a scalar doesn't reverse it! I wonder why I thought it did. Fixed code will go in the original node in a moment. I'm sure there are other bugs though - this was just example code!

    It does in  scalar context:
    >perl -wMstrict -le "my $s = 'foobar'; print reverse $s, 'zot'; print scalar reverse $s, 'zot'; " zotfoobar tozraboof
      Ah, thanks. Someday, when Perl is long gone, I'm not going to miss caring about what context my function calls are in!
