  • You need a word that's not so heavy as "persistent", which is also already in use with a different meaning, as you say.

    So, here are some words for you:

    • sticky
    • static
    • state (I don't like this one, but that's what perl 5.10 uses)

    My favorite is "sticky", which has a very informal feel about it.

    Also, you may want to try out the Reverse Dictionary Lookup [onelook.com], throw some words at it, and see how you like the alternative words that it comes up with.

  • Lexical::Environment
