When return forces you to choose between having the sub be 2 lines or running over 80 char, I think chip is right. If you are comfortable with anon subs, you probably have no problem with implicit return values.

Most of the time I use return, but in this case I stripped it out. And since the entire point of the code was to show me throwing around a ton of constructs, with each one serving to make the code shorter and clearer to a true expert (though not to co-workers), I had no hesitation in pulling out my return at the end of TIEHANDLE. Which I possibly shouldn't have done.

Oh well.

    Ah, yes. I couldn't see the original returns so I just made assumptions (insert cliche here) based on the complete lack of them.

    Yes, for subs that do almost nothing but return a value, I agree that no explicit return is often better. Thanks for the clarification.
