  • I agree the deref syntax is yuk, but I don't know if autoboxing is the answer. I actually think the direction of the pipeline with autoboxing is weird, not to mention the whole "is it returning things or modifying in place" confusion (yes, yes, obviously people would figure that one out, but both options are totally legit, so it is not always obvious which one it should/would/could be). Overall I found autoboxin' [cpan.org] to be kinda un-Perlish myself, I prefer to just meta-program [cpan.org] all that yuk away instead.
