[edan] Sorry, but I have to jump in here. I think "IMHO" can be
considered to be implied when anyone makes a statement about anything
other than a pure raw fact - anything else is obviously only the opinion
of the author. I guess you could argue whether "humble" is implied, but
"opinion" certainly is.
But I find it kind of ironic that you jump on his case about a so-called
"false claim" that is not only his own opinion (so how can it be
false?), but is shared by the authors of perl's own documentation. From
Because the intent of this feature is primarily to let you define
sub-routines that work like built-in functions ..."
Which is basically what sawyer x said.
