Official Mirror:
The autobox pragma allows methods to be called on integers, floats, strings, arrays, hashes, and code references in exactly the same manner as blessed references. The autoboxing is transparent: boxed values are not blessed into their (user-defined) implementation class (unless the method elects to bestow such a blessing) - they simply use its methods as though they are. The classes (packages) into which the native types are boxed are fully configurable. By default, a method invoked on a non-object is assumed to be defined in a class whose name corresponds to the 'ref()' type of that value - or SCALAR if the value is a non-reference.
