in thread typeglob/symbolic reference question

Why do you need to put so many complications around it?

Sorry. I just wanted to find an explanation for the syntax. I understand what the net result is--but if I don't understand how perl interprets the syntax then I won't be able to figure out what is happening in other contexts.

I guess for now I'll just have to go with *color and *{"color"} are equivalent--even though *{"color"} is not legal under strict refs.
