in thread my and local differences

They aren't from perl4...the date in the comments is actually from August of this year. I just think it's the programmer's unfamiliarity with the language.
There are other indicators that lead me to believe this. He doesn't ever use any modules, or even some of the standard lib stuff. For example, he's still packing socket addresses with:
$sockaddr = 'S n a4 x8'; $this = pack($sockaddr, $AF_INET, $port, $thisaddr);
And no, the $AF_INET isn't a typo, he's setting it at the start, cause he's not even using use Socket;
So...

*shrug*
