in thread typeglob/symbolic reference question

Why? In the end, it does exactly the same thing:

*{"$pkg\::$name"} = $code;

but a hell of a lot more convolutely.

And along the way, eschews using perfectly good Perl in favour of long laborious constructs because the author prefers to "whore for Devel::Cover"

# I'd rather use ||= but I'm whoring for Devel::Cover. for (qw(into from)) { $arg->{$_} = $calling_pkg unless $arg->{$_} +}

That's just ...

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
