in reply to exiting via next: Extra careful or just bitchy?

next (perldoc -f next) is for skipping over a loop iteration. Since your subroutine does not appear to be a loop, you should probably use something like return (perldoc -f return) to exit the subroutine. Read the caveats in the documentation, though. ;)

    Not exit! Maybe you mean return.

      Indeed I did! And I typed the wrong one twice. I'll fix it now. Mysterious non-functioning code... ;)
