NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     English - use nice	English	(or awk) names for ugly	punctuation variables

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

	 use English;
	 if ($ERRNO =~ /denied/) { ... }

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     This module provides aliases for the built-in variables whose names no
     one seems to like to read.	 Variables with	side-effects which get
     triggered just by accessing them (like $0)	will still be affected.

     For those variables that have an awk version, both	long and short English
     alternatives are provided.	 For example, the $/ variable can be referred
     to	either $RS or $INPUT_RECORD_SEPARATOR if you are using the English

     See the perlvar manpage for a complete list of these.
