Re: Never lock $0 inside of a BEGIN block (Win32?)
in thread Never lock $0 inside of a BEGIN block
For me the fact that this problem appeares only on Win32 machines makes it only worse. It obscures the view.
By the way why should one need to do it in the BEGIN block? I mean for sure there must be some cases where it is needed, but for most cases it is just a automatic thought, something like that: It should be locked early, early is linked in your brain with the BEGIN block - so put it into it.
