A BEGIN block is not marked by the sub keyword. Instead, you just use BEGIN {...}

It can be, though. "sub BEGIN" doesn't create a normal sub called BEGIN, but it is valid syntax. In fact, it is how B::Deparse deparses BEGIN blocks. The same goes for CHECK, INIT and END. See also what perlmod has to say about this.

Juerd # { site => 'juerd.nl', plp_site => 'plp.juerd.nl', do_not_use => 'spamtrap' }

Corion is mildly surprised as some different toy projects coagulate into a useful application. I've been toying with writing a Meetup wrapper and also have been toying with synchronizing events between (CalDAV) calendars, and now that means I can ...
[Corion]: ... easily* synchronize my personal calendar with Meetup and import stuff from Meetup there
[Corion]: * Code not yet written, some restrictions may apply
