37 * Some things like "@_" and the scratchpad list do not set this, to
38 * indicate that they are cheating (for efficiency) by not refcounting
39 * the AV's contents.
40 *
8c18259e 41 * SVpav_REIFY is only meaningful on such "fake" AVs (i.e. where SVpav_REAL
61b858cf
GS
42 * is not set). It indicates that the fake AV is capable of becoming
43 * real if the array needs to be modified in some way. Functions that
44 * modify fake AVs check both flags to call av_reify() as appropriate.

46 * Note that the Perl stack and @DB::args have neither flag set. (Thus,
47 * items that go on the stack are never refcounted.)
