I would consider conversion of "1" to 1 as different from
weak typing. Weak typing can take "1" and treat it as
a number, but it won't likely be 1. If it is, that's
a coincidence. Perl is simply doing implicitely what
other languages (even some strongly typed languages
like Pascal) can do explicitely.

There are others.
