in reply to Flag variables

Maybe wiser heads than mine have posted here, but if you're dying to use flags, you could use constants. So here's an answer to your third question.

use constant PRINTFLAG => 0; use constant SAVEFLAG => 1; use constant MAILFLAG => 2;

And then keep track of it with a status/state variable. That at least makes the code easier to read: $state = PRINTFLAG;, instead of just a number. Of course, it's really only approporiate where multiple states come into question.
