More Perl strangeness: eval and $@

I just learned something dangerous about altering $@ within an eval block.  I guess these things are getting fixed in Perl6.  Not sure.  I just can't believe that people use Perl for more than minor tasks. Ruby, Python, Go, and many others are much better alternatives, requiring much less expertise to avoid disastrous side-effects.
