in thread Perl Module returning a not true value

ok i see, i deleted that line thinking it was nothing. so all that line does is return a true value? Is that line always in a module?

    Yes.

    Is that line always in a module?

    Almost always. As you discovered, the module has to return a true value when it is loaded. By convention, modules are usually ended with a "1;" to ensure that the required true value is returned. Any true value will do though.
