[ #341 ]

After reading a journal entry here, James Duncan sent me some pretty cool code showing how to get constant overloading and literals-as-objects working as intended. At that point, Scalar::Properties had become an inevitability. Let me amuse you with an excerpt of the module's synopsis:

            use Scalar::Properties;
            my $val = 0->true;
                if ($val && $val == 0) {
                print "yup, its true alright...\n";

            my @text = (
                'hello world'->greeting(1),
                'forget it',
                'hi there'->greeting(1),
            print grep { $_->is_greeting } @text;

            my $l = 'hello world'->length;
