Perl Best Practices describes some excellent ideas (and also contains some crud, so don't believe everything, just because it's in print ).

  • Use lower case for subroutines, methods, variables and labelled arguments.
  • Use Mixed-Case for package and class names.
  • User UPPERCASE for constants.

But as far as your example is concerned, you hardcode sandbox to 0, then test whether it's 1, which of course it isn't. Maybe some user input would be good. It would be better to find a means to connect which doesn't involve passwords at all. Or if you need one, have it supplied on the command line?

As Occam said: Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
