I find that most insightful, and helpful. What I'm seeing here basically is that it's quite easy to 'break' strings. I haven't ever really tried, but I can see that if someone were to deliberately (or inadvertently) work such chicanery with text, it would probably break the 'protections' I've hoped to achieve with syswrite().

With regard to the idea of your possible assistance in documenting these specific Perl behaviors (once understood/clarified), you probably doesn't need to do so with significant stipulations for linguistic mistakes when you use words like "orthographic" in reference to your own literary introspection ;-) I.E.- you good, bro.

It would be a worthwhile undertaking, because I can't hope to successfully design working software implementations over undocumented behavior. I have some somewhat-pressing software deployments in the pipeline that are going to hinge on a firm understanding of these undocumented things.

A mistake can be valuable or costly, depending on how faithfully you pursue correction

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.
