in reply to Bareword rules?

Just as a quick comment, Deparse is very useful when trying to determine what the parser is actually doing:
$ perl -MO=Deparse -e 'print cat dog' print 'dog'->cat; -e syntax OK $ perl -MO=Deparse -e 'print reverse cat dog' print reverse('dog'->cat); -e syntax OK

I'm going to ASSUME that 5.004 has this ability, but considering it's decades old, maybe not.
