in reply to What is the point of this coding style?

I can just speculate that people have a deeply ingrained habit of keeping scopes small, either for things like no warnings 'once';, or for variable declarations.

Of course that would only apply if the code was

{ our $VERSION = '0.35'; }

but old habits die hard.

[Eily]: so he left from Nancy
[Eily]: and my point was, he met some monks yesterday in Italy who offered him a place for the night
[Eily]: and since he was meating eatalian monks I wondered if I should tell him to say hi to Discipulus for me :D
[erix]: Nancy-Bari: 1320 km ... He'll need some time :)
[LanX]: he was "meating" Italian monks oO?
[erix]: then again, there are people who do 10 full triathlons on 10 consecutive days, so it must be doable
choroba's friend has done the Pacific Crest Trail, it's 4200 km
