  • I'll guess that something in @_ has overloaded some operations, and by doing that you just get its value (perhaps after being stringified or numified) without any extra clever shit. It's something I've had to do too although in my case I just performed what looked like a null-op on just the one scalar.

    Now I'll go and read the other comments to see how wrong I am.
