I found the difference. You really used a "bug" in the 1.3 parser.

You wrote [$ hidden $] and I wrote [$hidden$]. The difference is the space
after the hidden. The 1.3 parser interprets this space as an first empty
argument. You can get the same result with [$ hidden , $] (with or without
spaces) in Embperl 2.

I think the way Embperl 2 behaves is more predictable and clean. I don't
think it makes sense to move this bug over to Embperl 2.

You can simple do a   s/hidden/hidden ,/   in your code and things should
work with both versions.
