Re: Constants lists in array slicesby kcott (Archbishop)

Some info first:
I first tried a cut-down version of your issue three different ways. All gave the correct slice; only the third had no warning message.
The first of those (see the WEEKDAYS example) suggested a fourth way to try; this gave the correct slice and no error:
The second has:
"List constants are not inlined unless you are using Perl v5.20 or higher."
This perhaps suggests why [X] (and probably [+X]) had problems; although I'm very much guessing here and don't really know what's going on under the hood.
