I don't buy the "Matt Wright" argument or whoever it is. I think people
can write perfectly good code in Perl 5 and use the & when calling
subroutines. You just need to be careful, per perlsub, in how you use
&. It's been my experience that prototypes are truly a hack, and that
they are not used that often. Again, this all may change with Perl 6,
but when will Perl 6 be released? It's probably years away. Personally
I think sigils are one of the things that makes Perl Perl, and that
typeglobs are pretty cool.
I always have coffee when I watch radar!
