in thread Question regarding variable scope

Actually, my() and our() do not behave the same from a subroutine. Both define a lexical context for the variable, however, my() allocates a new variable each time it is evaluated, while our() reuses a global.

For recursive subroutines, or subroutines that are accessed at the same time from multiple threads, my() variables are safe, while our() variables are unsafe.
