I would like to see a citation of this use of the word "lexiconical". In the first place, the word "lexiconical" has not been used in perl5-porters in living memory, and if had been used there, it is unlikely to have meant "figured out on the fly".
Hi Larry, I did a google and duckduckgo search through comp.lang.perl.misc for lexiconical and came up short, except for something I wrote on the "C" list. At the time, those guys had my head spinning. I come from Modula2 and the concept of type Any did not resonate. They were trying to explain how a variable could be different types, depending on what you assigned to it. -T
