@-interpolation in a string dates back to Perl version 5.000.

Oh, you young'uns. (:

It dates back way before that. I've personally used @-interpolation in strings in Perl v3.

> perl4 -e "print qq<(tye@ARGV)\n>" this that (tyethis that) > perl4 -e "print qq<(tye@foo)\n>" this that (tye@foo)

What changed with Perl5 was that the DWIM of optional interpolation was removed.

The only reason the second example needs to be fatal in Perl5 is so that the change in behavior was not a "silent change".

I suspect you know all of this, but your node was at least misleading so I felt clarification was in order.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
